I’m alarmed by the significant misinformation and undirected panic distracting our efforts at protecting the health of our families and communities. Our children and elderly are both at great risk from panic and rumors, and so are their caretakers.
Who Are You?
I’m an anesthesiologist and integrative medicine physician – I treat patients with emphasis on prevention, healthy lifestyle, nutrition, sleep, while also optimizing health in critical situations, like preparing and recovering from surgery.
How are you different than the CDC for COVID-19 information?
I am providing location- and situation-specific information to our local Bay Area communities. Our CDC and San Francisco, San Mateo, and Santa Clara public health departments are doing a great job of giving us information quickly, but we can’t ask personal, every-changing questions of them. I want to use our forums on NextDoor, Hillsborough Together, and this website to provide evidence-based recommendations for our local community.
Why are you doing this?
We are in uncharted territory with school closures, banned public gatherings, and significant misinformation all over the media. We need to protect the most vulnerable in our communities (the elderly, high-risk, children) who are at risk of severe disease and psychological impact from the situation.
