Kaiser Permanente physician
My gender: Male
Accepting new patients. Referral may be required.
Welcome to my Web Page. I came to San Diego in 1985 specifically to work for Kaiser Permanente Southern California.
I am the oldest of eight children and grew up in Port Washington, New York, which is on Long Island. I went to public high school and then Brown University for college. I married in 1979 and I have three children. My family has been very patient and understanding of the many hours away from home.
I am a very big believer in preventative medicine, but if you need a general surgeon I am ready to help. In addition to performing most of the procedures included in general surgery, part of my practice is focused on thyroid gland and parathyroid gland surgery.
I swim for exercise and I enjoy being outdoors, even if it is only to do yard work. I am very lucky that my wife is my best friend and an exceptional cook. We look forward to our grown children coming home to lively and loud discussions at the dinner table. We enjoy vacations on sunny beaches with warm water. I read about history and natural science, and I am a fanatical recycler. I recently started to restore my grandparents' stamp collection.
