Welcome to my Web page. I am happy to have this chance to introduce myself and my practice to you. I look forward to working with you to optimize your health, and I feel very fortunate to be at Kaiser Permanente among so many wonderful coworkers and patients.
I am originally from the Washington, D.C. area. I attended college at McGill University in Montreal, Canada. After working one year at the National Cancer Institute of the National Institutes of Health, I received my medical degree at Ohio State University. I then moved to Southern California and trained in family medicine at UCLA. I joined Kaiser Permanente soon after completing my training.
I am a hospital-based medical specialist at Kaiser Permanente Panorama City Medical Center. As a hospitalist, I care for adult members who have been admitted to the hospital. I believe in open communication among the physician, the patient, and the patient's family.
I enjoy spending time with my wife and son. Golf is a favorite activity that I pursue regularly.
