I feel very fortunate to work for Kaiser Permanente, and look forward to caring for your health. It is very important that you feel comfortable with your personal physician, and I hope the information on this page will help you get to know me.
Coming from a family in which both parents have had multiple medical problems and injuries, I know firsthand the stresses that illness can have on families, and appreciate how medicine can improve our quality of life. Medicine improved my own life when I underwent surgery at age 18. My experience as a hospital patient taught me how essential it is for me to be sensitive to the emotional as well as the physical needs of my patients.
My internal medicine practice involves caring for adult members in a wide range of areas, from taking care of you in the hospital to seeing you in the medical office. Health care requires the input of everyone on the team to create efficient and high-quality care. I look forward to putting this idea into action, and to being your partner in health. By using my medical skills and knowledge, and with your active involvement in caring for your own health, we can work together to help you stay healthy.
In my spare time, I enjoy snowboarding, backpacking, playing tennis, and spending time with family and friends. I also make it a priority to set aside time to just relax and have fun with my family. My wife and I love going to the beach with our daughter, and doing outdoor activities.
