Kaiser Permanente physician
My gender: Male
Accepting new patients. Referral may be required.
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.
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.
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.
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.
