Welcome to my Web page. I am a radiologist who does general radiology as well as interventional radiology. Interventional radiology (IR) is my current emphasis, and I spend most of my time doing image-guided procedures. I work with three other IR doctors, and we have a very busy practice here at Kaiser Permanente’s South Bay Medical Center.
I grew up in Northern California and attended UC Berkeley for my undergraduate studies in business and biology. I then went on to do research at Stanford University and for a biotechnology company in Silicon Valley. I attended medical school at USC. I spent six years doing my medical internship, radiology residency, and fellowship training in interventional radiology at USC as well.
As an interventional radiologist, I specialize in image-guided procedures ranging from image-guided biopsies using X-ray, ultrasound, or CT scans to angiography and embolization procedures. Embolization is a procedure in which you are slowing or stopping the blood flow in blood vessels.
The number one thing for me is diet. I try to eat a diet low in animal fat and protein and high in fruits, vegetables, and grains. I also exercise regularly by walking or running.
