I received my Doctor of Medicine degree (MD) from Baylor College of Medicine in Houston and completed fellowship training at the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center in Dallas in the field of allergy, asthma, and clinical immunology. I grew up in Richardson and went to the University of Texas at Austin.

Although it is rare for allergists to see patients in a hospital, this happens from time to time. Staff privileges are at Medical Center of McKinney, Baylor McKinney, and Presbyterian Hospital of Allen, as well as Parkland Hospital in Dallas, where I have teaching responsibilities. On occasion students will rotate through our office.

I have published articles or chapters in major journals and texts. Publications have covered the areas of asthma epidemiology, antihistamines, advanced therapies for hives resistant to standard treatments, new approaches for nasal inflammation not caused by allergies, and drug allergy. Journals in which these publications have appeared include the major allergy journals: The Journal of Allergy and Clinical Immunology (including In Practice) and the Annals of Allergy, Asthma, and Immunology, as well as allergy-related works from other disciplines, such as the Annals of Pharmacotherapy, Advances in Psychosomatic Medicine, the Archives of Dermatology, Dermatitis, and others.

I have been made a fellow (FAAAAI) of the American Academy of Allergy, Asthma, and Immunology and a fellow (FACAAI) of the American College of Allergy, Asthma, and Immunology. I am a diplomate (board certified) of the American Board of Allergy and Immunology. I have been named to the Collin County edition of D Magazine’s top doctors list for allergists over many years.

I love treating (and most of the time fixing!) our patients’ allergies, but all work and no play is very dull, indeed.

I have been fortunate to visit many places, especially many places that others might consider off the beaten track. Choosing where to visit include (1) somewhere not previously visited, (2) where American visitors are not unwelcome, and (3) where it’s not too expensive. I especially like to visit Asia (which has an unfair advantage, since it’s the largest and most populous continent) and the Southern Hemisphere. The office is decorated with inexpensive but colorful curios brought back from my travels and a few other things too. Art from all the people of the world is special and interesting and deserves to be seen and appreciated. Descriptions are in the gallery.

I also have an interest in earlier keyboard instruments. Much of the music played today on the piano was actually written for other keyboard instruments, including the harpsichord and fortepiano. I am able to play the modern piano, although not really as a virtuoso. Here I like playing a limited number of works by Debussy, Albeniz, and Mussorgsky. However, playing Mozart, Beethoven, and Schubert on the fortepiano and Baroque works on the harpsichord has a special way of bringing to life the art of a bygone age like no other experience. I listen to slightly different music yet again: try Mahler, Tavener (not Taverner, although his Renaissance era works are fine in small bites), and Pärt. Better soundtracks are nice, too. I enjoy tinkering with Photoshop, both for fun and for everyday practical applications. I have used Adobe Photoshop since version 2 back in the early 1990s. In fact, I am not a dominantly visual person, as I like exotic smells and tastes (see below) and sounds (see above). But we do live in a mostly visual world, and it is a wonder to be able to alter visual reality. Mainly I use Photoshop to restore old photos and repair digital photos taken presently. For example, putting this website together required the use of Photoshop.

And I can’t mention Photoshop without my Mac. I have bought and used all kinds of Apple computers since 1983. When I need to be productive and get my work done without fuss, it must be on a Mac.
No evening is complete without reading the next morning’s opinion pieces in the Wall Street Journal. I regard this as the finest quality and most trustworthy source of broad news (not just financial) around.

I also like driving electric cars, which are perfect for the short distances I drive 99% of the time. I love the instant torque, the quiet, and the ability to charge at home overnight. I will never need to get an oil change or fill up with fuel. I love tropical fruits, many of which are exotic and not available in local markets (or at least not in great edible condition). Check these faves out (click each name to see the photo and my description). The only one attempting to be grown in my backyard is the Chilean guava. It should survive our winters, given shelter from the wind. I am also waiting on some heirloom tomato and alpine strawberry plants.
