I’ve been a pediatrician and a Fellow of the American Academy of Pediatrics for more than 25 years. I graduated from the University of Notre Dame in 1975 with a biology degree, and received my MD degree from the University of Illinois in Chicago in 1979. Following pediatric residency training at the University of Michigan, I joined The Permanente Medical Group in Sacramento, California, in 1982.  Since 1990, I have practiced with The Permanente Medical Group in Santa Rosa, California, where I served as Chief of Pediatrics from 1997-2002.

My other passion is teaching. I mentor high school and college students interested in a career in medicine, and teach medical students and family practice residents here in Santa Rosa. I am an Assistant Clinical Professor in the Department of Community and Family Medicine at the University of California, San Francisco.

My writing has appeared in the Chicago Tribune, the San Francisco Chronicle, the San Francisco Examiner, Notre Dame Magazine and the Santa Rosa Press Democrat. I am a member of the editorial board of Sonoma Medicine and a frequent contributor to that award-winning magazine.

I have been happily married to Elisabeth Chicoine for 23 years. We live in Santa Rosa, California, with our two teenaged children, Claire and John Patrick, who continue to provide me with a wealth of practical pediatric experience.
