Hello, and welcome to my Web page! My name is Kevin and I'm the newest allergist at KP in San Diego . I originally grew up in the Midwest, but came to Southern California for college and medical school, and have not left since. I look forward to serving the Kaiser Permanente community and the wonderful patients that are part of the Kaiser Permanente family.
Being a physician is a privilege, and it’s one that I don't take lightly. The trust our patients place in us is unique, and it is my job to honor that trust by helping each patient the best that I can. Prior to going into medicine, I was a researcher in immunology, so I also have an interest in the basic sciences and bringing treatments from the "bench to bedside." In my spare time, I enjoy spending time with my wife and children, attending my local church, and doing leisure activities like sports and reading.
I strongly believe in empowering patients through information. That means that I do my best to describe the disease process, and explain the treatment plan to each patient in as much detail as they need to be successful. No physician has all the answers, but working as a team with the patient will help us to hopefully arrive at a positive outcome.
To thrive, I like to exercise with my wife (it gives us both motivation), spend time with the kids (because they are more active than I am), and go out to explore San Diego and its surroundings!
