I am originally from Pennsylvania and completed my training at the University of Pittsburgh. Prior to working for Kaiser Permanente, I worked for 11 years in Longview, Washington.
I practice emergency medicine at Sunnyside and Westside Medical Centers. I also provide telephone advice to patients and providers at the Regional Telephonic Medical Center. I am the lead physician for Mobile Health Partners, a pilot program for evaluating patients in their home by specially trained paramedics.
I play a few instruments in a band with other Kaiser Permanente physicians. I am a newly licensed private pilot.
