Steve grew up in a family of artists in Queens, New York. A strong desire to help others combined with a fascination of the human body led him to medical school in Des Moines, Iowa. From there he completed an Internal Medicine residency at Yale University. When not caring for patients you can find him biking in the hills above his home in Los Gatos or enjoying the natural beauty, wineries, and restaurants in the Bay Area. He believes in maintaining a high level of fitness and making sure that every day includes time to relax and have fun.
