Hello, and welcome to my Web page. I'm glad to have this opportunity to present my credentials to you and share other information about myself. It's very important that you feel comfortable with your personal physician, and I hope this page will help you start to get to know me.
I’m originally from Phoenix, but I moved to New York City to attend medical school. After four years in the big city, I decided to do my surgical training in sunny Southern California. My wife and I love surfing, hiking, camping, as well as the many other outdoor adventures Southern California has to offer. We enjoy making new friends and are happy to make Southern California our home for good. I come from a large family, and now have a growing family of my own—including a young son and daughter. I volunteer for many local organizations—ranging from beach cleaning to diabetic foot screenings. Volunteering through Kaiser Permanente helps me connect to my community and helps others stay on their feet.
I feel that healthy living and preventive care are the best ways to stay healthy, but I'm also here to help you when you’re in need. I want to be your partner in healthy foot care, and it helps me better care for you when you are actively involved in taking care of your feet. I only offer surgical options when necessary.
I firmly believe in Kaiser Permanente's philosophy of health in mind, body, and spirit, and try to live it in my life every day. My family life is my major priority. I enjoy family hikes, going to the beach, and quiet family nights. I enjoy trail running, water and snow skiing, and paddle boarding—really anything I can do outside with my family. My wife, children, and I enjoy all that Southern California has to offer.
