About me

Welcome to my Web page. I hope the information on this page will help you feel comfortable if you receive care from me. I am committed to providing high-quality care. I would be honored to be your anesthesiologist.

Biography

I am a second-generation anesthesiologist. I attended grand rounds at UC San Francisco with my father from the time I was in high school. I always knew I wanted to be a physician and started as a hospital volunteer in high school. Later, I worked summers and evenings during the school year at Kaiser Permanente as an anesthesia technician. I finished my undergraduate studies in three years from Stanford University and took another year to pursue a master’s degree in science. While there, I worked as a graduate school teaching assistant. After medical school and residency at UC San Francisco, I joined Kaiser Permanente.

About my practice

I’m part of an anesthesiology team that provides direct anesthesia care in the operating room and obstetrics suite as well as supervises certified registered nurse anesthetists. I am interested in obstetrical and regional anesthesia. I try to incorporate new technology and techniques into my practice. As the chief of anesthesiology, I also focus some of my time and energy in the hospital serving on various committees.

How I thrive

I am an avid runner and enjoy participating in races, from 5Ks to full marathons. I have also completed more than 10 Ironman Triathlons. For 2013, I received the Silver Ironman All World Athlete Award for ranking in the top 5 percent in my age group. My goal is to run the Boston Marathon and to compete at the Ironman World Championships in Kona, Hawaii. I encourage all my family, friends, and colleagues to adopt an active lifestyle that will promote good health. Our department has had multiple top-three finishes in various team marathon relays. In 2013, our corporate team placed first at the Big Sur International Marathon. We look forward to defending our title in future years.
