Thank you for taking the time to visit my Web page. Finding a physician is a very personal decision and can be challenging. I'm hoping that by reading a little about me, you'll have a sense of who I am, what is important to me, and how I can connect with you as your potential physician.
I'm a true Southern Californian at heart who has spent time up and down the coast and across the country. Trust me, there is no where else I would rather be than right here in California. I earned my bachelor's degree from UC Berkeley, and a master's degree in public health at UCLA. At that point I realized that I wanted to maintain a personal connection with people, so I slightly adjusted my course and earned my medical degree from Drexel University College of Medicine in Philadelphia. After becoming a fellow of the American College of Physicians and practicing in academia, I was able to find a home right here with Kaiser Permanente.
I believe in partnering with my patients to help improve people's health. We truly believe in being part of this wonderful and diverse community, but to do that both my nurse and I need to connect with each individual who walks through our doors.
I love spending time with my beautiful wife and my amazingly cute, loving, innocent and funny baby daughter. We are fortunate to be surrounded by wonderful weather, friends and family. I hope my enthusiasm and happiness comes across in my first meeting with you! Welcome to our family at Kaiser Permanente.
