Hello, and welcome to my Web page. I have been a practicing pediatrician for more than 16 years, 14 of those years with Kaiser Permanente.
I am married and a father of three boys. I love the sport of basketball, music (jazz, world music, classic rock) and art.
For me, the continued desire to learn and innovate must be present in the practice of medicine. I practice with a philosophy of respect and empathy for all people, regardless of their backgrounds or any language barriers that may exist. I love the practice of medicine and taking care of children. My desire is to treat my patients with a more holistic approach, treating the whole person and not just the symptoms of an illness.
I love to read and watch documentaries on subjects such as music, politics, nature and history. Most importantly, I love to spend time with my family. Involvement in community service is also an important part of my life. I participate in international volunteer missions to developing countries three times yearly.
