I grew up in Portland, Oregon, love the Pacific Northwest lifestyle and can't imagine a better home. Following high school I traveled and lived in the Southeast while serving in the United States Air Force. Prior to joining Kaiser Permanente in 2014 I gained over 15 years of clinical experience on the hepatology and liver transplant faculty at an academic medical center, most recently serving as the director of the viral hepatitis clinic and director of clinical hepatology research. I practice medicine to help people and serve my community. I take great satisfaction in helping patients distill complex data into meaningful information and am fortunate to go home every night knowing I have helped someone.
I am one of four specialists in the Hepatology Department. My practice involves all aspects of liver disease evaluation and management, including viral infections of the liver like hepatitis B and C, cirrhosis, liver cancer care and liver transplantation. My clinical passion is leveraging extensive knowledge and resources to manage advanced liver disease. I hope to improve life quality and health outcomes for patients and the community and am involved in these efforts at local, regional and national levels. I have a special interest in using computer applications to study and improve outcomes in patients with liver disease. Ultimately, I view myself as a facilitator to help members understand their unique needs and guide them through their choices.
I believe that when you stop learning you stop growing. I love learning about people and other cultures, Portland history and architecture, children's literature and the history of world religions. One of my most cherished activities is cooking with my wife and children for family gatherings. I enjoy spending time outdoors and look forward to future travels at home and abroad.
