"A native of California, I studied exercise physiology and health sciences at St. Mary’s College in Moraga where I met my beautiful wife Christine. We married and moved to Omaha where we both attended Creighton; medical school and nursing school. My training in Family Medicine at the Creighton University Medical Center kept us in Omaha for 3 more years. We started our family in Omaha with two beautiful girls, Hannah and Rachel. Ultimately the pull of family and the weather proved to be too great and brought us back to the bay area for my fellowship year in Sports medicine in San Jose. After finishing the one year program, it was my wife’s turn to choose where we went. She took her dream nursing job at the UC Davis Medical Center. I worked for a few years at a practice in Rocklin, but found a better fit and joined Turnure Medical Group, where for the past 8 years I helped to build an excellent primary care practice.
Choosing to settle in the Sacramento area has been wonderful. In 2009 we decided we were not done growing our family, and chose to pursue adoption. In 2010 Sebastian and Alejandra, a sibling pair from the foster care system, were adopted into our family. Adoption has been both challenging and rewarding, often at the same time. The blessings we have been given through our professions, family and adoption, Bayside Church, and our wonderful friends are truly amazing. My family and I also love the close proximity to lakes, mountains, and outdoor activities. We realized our dream of rural living in 2008 moving out to Loomis to live on a few acres. Taking care of the property is hard, but relaxing work and I love to work outside. We have two dogs, several chickens, and a couple of goats, and I love exposing my kids to the farm life that I grew up with.
The past few years, I have seen the insurance bureaucracy get worse, the number of patients I need to see every day go up, and most importantly the time able to spend with patients go down. This trend forced me to take a long hard look at how I was spending my time….and realized most of it was not related directly to patient care. I am so excited to evolve my medical practice into this new direct care model that allows me to develop the relationships and spend the time with patients that is so necessary in primary care."
"Imagine a medical practice where you have direct communication with your physician when it is convenient for you. An office that is free of the rushed and impersonal environment typical of medical care today. A place where you can spend the time you need with your doctor to have your questions and concerns thoroughly addressed. A practice that utilizes advanced technology allowing you to save time and access your medical information easily.
Now stop imagining, and let Dr. Hedman, Dr. Lichti and Dr. Brown welcome you to Placer Private Physicians."
