Hello. I have been with Kaiser Permanente since 1996 and have thoroughly enjoyed my practice here. After completing both medical school and residency at UC Irvine, I decided to continue on as a chief medical resident. Completing that year left me with the choice of staying there or going into the community to practice. As I evaluated various medical practices, it was evident to me that Kaiser Permanente would give me the opportunity to deliver quality health care. During my last 11 years of practice here, I have been able to realize this.
I feel very blessed to have a fulfilling life and career. Cycling, hiking, walking, and just about any outdoor activities are enjoyable for me. In addition to maintaining physical health, spiritual health is also important. I am very active in my church
I currently practice as a hospitalist. This means I only see patients who are admitted to the hospital. What I enjoy the most about what I do is getting my patients healthy and back to doing the things they enjoy.
Maintaining strong spiritual, emotional, and physical health is crucial for me to be able to offer the best care that I can. I do various activities including cycling, hiking, and walking to keep healthy. Regular ministry activities and connecting with my small Bible study group helps to keep me grounded spiritually. I also have a supportive family and a group of friends.
