About Me

Welcome to my Web page. I am pleased to introduce myself, and tell you about my practice.


I was born at this Kaiser Permanente hospital, and have been a Kaiser Permanente member nearly my whole life. I was raised and educated in Southern California, and now make my home here with my wife and two children. When it became time to choose a place to practice medicine, Kaiser is where I looked first. I have not been disappointed. I will do my very best to address your concerns, and keep you in good health. Even after over 25 years of practice, I am excited about my work, and feel privileged to care for my patients, many of whom have been with me since the beginning. My Kaiser colleagues and the members I treat have enriched my life as I hope I have theirs.

About my practice

My practice consists of adults of all ages, some of whom I treat occasionally for acute problems, and some I monitor regularly for chronic conditions. I am very fortunate to work with an outstanding nursing staff. As a team, we work together to promptly return your calls or emails to answer questions, help with any problem, or discuss lab results.

How I thrive

Having lived my entire life in Southern California, I love the outdoors. Whether walking with my wife, cycling with my kids, hiking as a family, or gardening alone, I am in heaven. I also enjoy classical music, and play my violin as often as I can.
