About Me

It’s my pleasure and privilege to serve as a personal physician at the Kaiser Permanente West Los Angeles Medical Center.

Biography

I’m originally from the Northeast—Scranton, Pennsylvania, and Syracuse, New York. I moved to Los Angeles after medical school to be with my then girlfriend—now my wife—and to train at the Los Angeles County+USC Medical Center.

About my practice

I consider it a privilege to be a person’s primary care physician. I appreciate the uniqueness of everyone I see in my office. I encourage my members to stay active. I frequently say, “Disease has trouble hitting a moving target!”

How I thrive

I very much enjoy the days when I have dinner at home with my wife and children. This gathering helps me to stay balanced. In addition, I thoroughly enjoy bike rides with my children as well as walking to our neighborhood park with our dog. Another favorite activity is to ride my bicycle to work through a beautiful marina—it’s a great way to start my day.
