Managed care affiliation.

I formerly served on the Board of Directors of the Santa Clara County Individual Practice Association (SCCIPA) since its inception over 25 years ago. I helped the Board guide its recent sale to HCA. Under new ownership, I anticipate SCCIPA will continue to flourish. But, having changed my practice affiliation and location in January, 2016, I am no longer in network with the SCCIPA managed care organization. However, I am now able to accept HMO patients referred to me within the Sutter network, along with Medicare and most PPO patients.
