About Me

Welcome to my Web page. I’m happy to have this chance to introduce myself to you and tell you about my practice. I work with wonderful colleagues and members at Kaiser Permanente, and I look forward to working with you and your family, too.


I was born in California and have always felt fortunate to be part of such a diverse community. I have a wonderful wife and two beautiful children who always try to challenge my patience! Having children always reminds me about how precious life is and how none of us should take even one day for granted. Being both a parent and a family physician helps me understand the dynamics of so many of my members.

About my practice

At this time, I’m the assistant area medical director. Therefore, I split my time between administration and our Family Medicine Clinic at the De Soto Medical Center. My practice is all about rapport and mutual respect. I believe in laughter and optimism. Preventive medicine is of utmost importance and I do expect you to keep your end of the bargain! This would include a healthy lifestyle and compliance with your health strategy.

How I thrive

A positive attitude and exercise are the keys to making it through the stressful life that any physician lives.
