I was born in Ethiopia and moved to California at a young age. During my first year of college at the University of California-Davis, I realized I wanted to go into medicine; specifically specializing in cardiology. Since making that choice, I continue to enjoy the challenges of the field. I live with my wife and two daughters, who are the joy of my life.
I joined Kaiser Permanente to provide first class service to patients. I treat our members the way I would like my family to be treated; with compassion, honesty and dignity.
I thrive by realizing that I am making a difference in our members' lives. Personally, I try to balance my life with exercise and family time. I am a huge basketball and L.A. Lakers fan.
