What made you choose the Coachella Valley?
I was a Naval Physician stationed at Naval Hospital 29 Palms from 2000-2003. I left active duty and joined Kerrigan Family Medical Group in Palm Desert in 2003. My wife and I love La Quinta and decided this is where we want to raise our family. I started my own practice in 2006.
What trends in Integrated Health Care do you see here in the Valley?
I see more physicians/practitioners offering alternatives to traditional medical care. Patients are getting frustrated with the current state of medical care and are seeking alternatives. Integrative health care provides a more personalized approach which is what most people want. Our population is living longer and realizing that integrative approaches to their wellness can provide a better quality of life.
Biggest concern with our health care system?
Our current system does not provide enough incentive for prevention and wellness. The traditional insurance driven model of health care does not seem to encourage patients to be proactive about their health and does not recognize scientifically proven alternative treatment modalities. There is a shortage of primary care physicians, thus patients can be without the guidance and education needed for their health.
What are your hobbies?
I love traveling with my family and enjoy music. I sing and play guitar in a
local rock band called “The Refills”
