About me

Ever since childhood, I wanted to be a physician. I cannot imagine being unable to care for patients! I am originally from Montego Bay, Jamaica, but our home has been in the Decatur/Stone Mountain area for over 20 years. We have two sons in college and two daughters in high school.

About my practice

I strongly believe that health care is a shared responsibility between the patient and the practitioner. Best results come from a collaborative relationship, which is what I strive to have with our members. I enjoy all aspects of medicine, but feel passionately about the need to control chronic diseases such as high blood pressure, diabetes and high cholesterol.

How I thrive

I enjoy spending time with my family and my faith-based group. I also enjoy early morning walks with my dog while the air is still fresh and cool. I get fulfilment from my role as a doctor in the U.S. Army Reserve and the contributions I can make to my country as well.

The information in this online directory is updated periodically. The availability of physicians, hospitals, providers, and services may change. Before receiving care at a facility, select that location in our directory and verify the accepted plan types under "About this facility" to make sure it is available in your plan. If no plan types are listed, the facility is available for all plan types.

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.

Information about a practitioner is provided to us by the practitioner or the practitioner's network, or is obtained as part of the credentialing process.
