Danielle’s educational experience has taken her across the U.S.A., from an undergraduate at the University of California, San Diego to New York University School of Medicine, residency at Scripps Mercy San Diego, and Endocrinology Fellowship at Stanford University. She is Board Certified in Internal Medicine and in Endocrinology and Metabolism. She is happy to return back to her hometown of San Diego to her private Endocrinology practice.

Within the broad field of Endocrinology, her areas of expertise include the management of obesity, diabetes, metabolic syndrome and nutritional counseling, thyroid, pituitary, adrenals, lipids, and osteoporosis as well as the hormonal transition through mid-life for both men and women. She enjoys offering educational programs to the community and is active on the volunteer clinical faculty of the University of California, San Diego School of Medicine.

Her philosophy on patient care is exemplified by Francis Peabody's statement, "The secret of the care of the patient is in caring for the patient." I truly believe that this is the best and only way to practice medicine.
