About Me

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.

About my practice

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.

How I thrive

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.
