Hello, and welcome to my web page. I'm happy to have this opportunity to present my credentials to you and share some information about myself. It's very important that you feel comfortable with your physician, and I hope this page will help you start to get to know me. I am a physician in the Anesthesiology Department at the Kaiser Permanente San Diego Medical Center.
I was born in New York and I am the youngest of six children. I attended Yale University for my undergraduate degree. My medical school and training in anesthesiology was done at Tufts University. I then completed a fellowship training in pain medicine at Harvard University. Before coming to Kaiser Permanente, I was able to serve as a physician at the Veterans Administration in Connecticut, and as an assistant professor at Yale University School of Medicine's Department of Anesthesiology.
I am so happy and proud to be practice as a physician at Kaiser Permanente. I enjoy coming to work every day with great colleagues who have a shared vision and commitment to providing excellent care to our members. As an anesthesiologist, I am privileged to take care of patients during their time of surgery and be their advocate for safety and comfort. I also help to treat and care for patients with chronic pain as a member of the Interventional Anesthesia team.
I am a health enthusiast. Living well and preventing sickness and disease are very important to me and I try to impart my knowledge to others. I love being part of the San Diego community and exploring everything it has to offer. Outside of work, I enjoy outdoor sports, the NFL, music, and comedy.
