About me

When I was in the fourth grade, I decided I wanted to become a pediatrician. I have always enjoyed science and working with children. Becoming a pediatrician seemed like the perfect career, and it has been for me.I grew up in Milwaukee, and I attended Marquette University High School. I then moved to Omaha, Neb. to attend Creighton University, which is where I met my beautiful wife and had two daughters. My parents and siblings had moved to Atlanta, so I also decided to move to Atlanta also and joined Kaiser Permanente in 1989.Since living in Atlanta, we have been blessed with two more daughters, both now in high school. Our two oldest daughters have been fortunate to graduate from the University of Georgia.

About my practice

My goal, as a pediatrician, is to address the physical health of your child and help you as a parent with the challenges of raising a child. Most of my parents and patients would describe me as friendly and easygoing. I enjoy seeing all ages of pediatric patients, from infants to age 21. I have been with Kaiser Permanente long enough to now see the children of the children I used to treat. This is a special joy for me.I also enjoy some administrative duties and have been the managing physician of the Gwinnett Medical Center since 1993.

How I thrive

I enjoy spending time with my wife and children. I try to stay fit by getting on my treadmill regularly to watch movies and being involved in a tennis league. My interests include photography and gardening. I also occasionally travel to Haiti to support a medical clinic my church established there.

Kaiser Permanente uses the same quality, member experience, or cost-related measures to select practitioners and facilities in Marketplace Silver-tier plans as it does for all other Kaiser Foundation Health Plan (KFHP) products and lines of business. The measures may include, but are not limited to, HEDIS/CAHPS performance, member/patient complaints, patient safety scores, hospital quality measures, and geographic need. Members enrolled in KFHP Marketplace plans have access to all professional, institutional and ancillary health care providers who participate in KFHP plans' contracted provider network, in accordance with the terms of the members' KFHP plan of coverage. All Kaiser Permanente Medical Group physicians and network physicians are subject to the same quality review processes and certifications.

Kaiser Permanente uses the same geographic distribution consideration to select hospitals in Marketplace plans as it does for all other Kaiser Foundation Health Plan (KFHP) products and lines of business.
