Welcome to my Web page! I am grateful for this opportunity to tell you a little bit about myself as well as my practice as an anesthesiologist at Kaiser Permanente.
I am originally from the Midwest. I grew up in Michigan and obtained a bachelor’s degree in biochemistry from the University of Michigan. I stayed in Ann Arbor for medical school and then completed my training in anesthesiology at the Cleveland Clinic. I moved to Southern California with my wonderful wife to be closer to her family.
Having been a surgical patient myself in the past, I realize the experience of having surgery can cause anxiety. That's why I try to spend extra time with members answering all their questions about anesthesia. I believe this helps to alleviate the fear that comes with having surgery.
As a physician, I know it's important to take care of myself so I can better care of members. I stay active by swimming, playing basketball, and going to the gym. I nourish my mind and spirit by reading, traveling with my wife, and visiting family.
