Robert graduated from Cal-State Northridge in 1985. He spent his first year after graduating as a PT at LA County Hospital and felt it was great opportunity to learn how to think on your feet. He then spent the next 12 years at Stanford Hospital working in multiple areas of the hospital including bone marrow transplant, internal medicine, inpatient and outpatient orthopaedic and chronic pain patients. Robert passed boards for his Certification in Hand Therapy in 1994 and has specialized in treating the hand and upper extremity ever since. After Stanford Robert was with a private practice in Palo Alto for 18 years and joined Agile in 2016.
Outside of the clinic, you can find Robert on his bike (mountain and road), hiking, woodworking, cooking or in his garden. Yoga and Tai Chi are a regular part of his maintenance program. He also notes that yes, he has been to Burning Man and no, boredom is never an issue.
