About Me

Welcome to my Web page! I'm one of the Emergency Department physicians at Kaiser Permanente Downey Medical Center. I may have had the honor of taking care of you during a recent visit. If so, I hope that the care you received exceeded your expectations and that you’re feeling much better!

Biography

I’ve lived in various parts of the country—including Alaska, Louisiana, Florida, Illinois, and Washington, DC. I can definitely say that the weather and beaches of Southern California provide exactly the environment I want now. The members at Downey Medical Center are a pleasure to serve. For me, one of the best things about being a physician is that I get to ease suffering every day.

About my practice

The Emergency Department can be a stressful place for people to visit. We see a large number of members each day. Our goal is to get members into a room and treated as quickly as possible. We are constantly improving our protocols to better serve our members.

How I thrive

I’m an avid runner! My dog and I stay fit and happy by running on trails. I also enjoy Bikram yoga, traveling, and anything that gets me outdoors. Sleep is another key part of my health philosophy. I like to eat low-fat, locally grown, fresh food, and I avoid fast food completely.
