About me

I was born and raised in New York City and am now happy to call Atlanta home. I have had the opportunity to live and train in multiple regions of the country including the Northeast, Mid-Atlantic and West Coast. I decided to go into medicine because of key role models in my life and for the ability we, as physicians, have to help others in such a unique way. I completed two years of orthopedic subspecialty training, first in hand/microvascular surgery at the University of Virginia, and then in shoulder and elbow surgery at the University of Washington. The daily opportunities I get to make positive differences in the lives of others are unique, and to do this is a blessing.

About my practice

Philosophically, I am committed to engaging and building positive, meaningful relationships with our members. I specialize in treating orthopedic conditions of the hand, shoulder and elbow. I chose Kaiser Permanente because I wanted to be a part of an integrated and economically efficient health care system that matches my practice philosophy. As a surgeon, I am fascinated by the diversity of care needs that I see, and even more amazed by the various ways that I can treat them. However, I prefer non-operative treatment when possible. There are often many treatment alternatives available, and I proceed with surgery when it is necessary.

How I thrive

One of my core values is maintaining a healthy work-life balance. By being in harmony professionally, socially and spiritually, I can be most effective as a surgeon. Adventure and travel have always been my passions. Whether it is scuba diving, snowboarding or heading to a new locale, I am always looking to expand my horizons. This has helped make me a well-rounded person. I have also been involved in international volunteer work for the past 12 years. Each year, I travel to Ghana in West Africa to perform surgery on underserved populations. I have realized that orthopedics is about much more than fixing bones and performing procedures; it is about giving people hope. This is priceless, and I feel honored and humbled to be a part of it.
