About Me

Hello, and welcome to my Web page. I am happy to introduce myself, and tell you about my practice. I feel very fortunate to work at Kaiser Permanente in the Coachella Valley with wonderful colleagues and patients, and I look forward to helping you care for your health.


I grew up here in the desert, where I attended public schools. After living in various cities and states across the United States for college, medical school, residency, and fellowship training, I returned to the Coachella Valley to practice. I am married with three children, and we live in Palm Springs.

About my practice

With the caring support of my nurses and our fine staff, I practice family medicine in the Kaiser Permanente Palm Springs Medical Offices, and on a limited basis in the Palm Desert Medical Offices. I enjoy being a physician. It is rewarding and provides me an opportunity to interact with you and your family in a meaningful way. It is a privilege to have the chance to help you with your concerns when you are ill, provide you with appropriate evaluations, and partner with you in your efforts to regain and maintain optimal health.

How I thrive

I balance my life as best I can in this busy world! I spend time with my wife and three kids on family outings to local parks and playgrounds, the zoo, pool time in the backyard, walking the dog, and exploring all that Southern California has to offer. I enjoy hiking in the local mountains, the Indian Canyons, going up the tramway, and exploring Joshua Tree National Park. I am lucky to have relatives and friends nearby, and I look forward to seeing them on weekends.
