About Me

Welcome to my Web page. I feel honored to be part of the positive, innovative health care at Kaiser Permanente. I hope you will find useful tips on this site, so we may partner with you for your health care.


I grew up in Sacramento, California, where I always knew I would be a family physician. I never knew my journey would lead me to Southern California. Drawn here by my wife, I’ve since enjoyed the lovely weather and lively mix of city and beach. I can’t think of a better place to work and to raise my children.

About my practice

My practice philosophy is simply this—teamwork. This not only extends to my staff, fellow physicians, and pharmacists, but to you, our member. We are all equally a part of a single team, driven to promote great health. I believe Kaiser Permanente is committed to this vision, and has provided tools—like this Web site—to help us all succeed.

How I thrive

To me, healthy living means keeping every part of life balanced and moving forward. I believe firmly in this, and make sure I not only make time for work, but also for my family and for myself. In our busy lives, we tend to forget to care for the most important person in our lives—ourselves. I make sure to exercise a couple of times per week, and encourage my children to do the same by engaging in family walks. This promotes not only good physical health, but good spiritual health, too.
