Hello, and welcome to my Web page! My name is Dr. Michael Perdon, and I am happy to help you meet your health goals at Kaiser Permanente.
I was born and raised in the Philippines and moved to New York to start my preliminary training in internal medicine. I completed my residency training in Houston and practiced primary care medicine at the Texas Medical Center, the largest medical complex in the world. I moved to Southern California to enjoy more outdoor activities with my wife and 2 sons. We enjoy spending time together as a family, whether it be travelling to other countries and learning about different cultures or just spending time at home watching movies. I became a physician because I want to help others in need, so they can be the best they can be for their families and loved ones.
I believe that to achieve a health goal, the first step is to set your mind on the goal. I work with members on their goals, and success depends on the teamwork between the member and the physician. I also believe that working with a multidisciplinary team of other doctors, nurses, and ancillary staff, as well as members’ families, is essential to obtain optimum health.
In order to care for others, one must care for himself or herself first. I take time every morning to just focus on my plans for the day and pray to ask for guidance on how to be a blessing to everyone I come in contact with. I make it a priority to maintain balance in my professional and personal life. When I’m at work, I focus on my work, and when I’m at home, I focus on my family. I try to practice what I preach by eating a healthy diet and getting exercise during the week. It is my personal goal to stay healthy in mind, body, and spirit in order to be the best physician I can be for members.
