  • I am a board certified internist that has spent the past 12 years in the world of healthcare IT. I was an early employee at ePocrates where I designed the formulary tool still in use today by over 100,000 physicians. I then was the Director of Informatics for a large integrated delivery system in San Francisco, where I led the implementation of a systemwide EMR. I recently left Archimedes, a healthcare analytics company where I was VP of Medicine and Products. I am now working on a new project with a few dedicated souls looking to change the world of personalized medicine. More to come. I am also fortunate to serve as the Founding Chair of the Doximity Medical Advisory Board, where I help guide the development of the number one physician network.
