Kaiser Permanente physician
My gender: Male
Not accepting new patients. Please call 1-888-956-1616.
I’m happy to have this chance to introduce myself to you and tell you about my practice. I feel very fortunate to work at Kaiser Permanente because of my wonderful colleagues and members, and look forward to working with you to help you care for your health.
I’m a native Southern Californian. I’m not sure why, but I always remember wanting to be a physician. When I was young I had asthma and remember a physician coming to my house to help me breathe better. The physician helping me must have instilled in me that a physician is someone who helps people.
I feel that healthy living and preventive care are the best ways to stay healthy, but I’m also here to help you when you’re sick. I want to be your partner in health, and it helps me better care for you when you’re actively involved in taking care of your health. As a physician, I put in long hours during the week and the only way I can survive mentally is through exercise.
I play tennis three to four times per week, and go to the gym one or two times per week. I believe that the stresses in our lives are helped with exercise. We’re all looking for more energy and exercise is the answer. Enjoying time with my family helps me emotionally.
