About me

I am glad to introduce myself, and share a bit about my practice. I hope this page will help you feel that you know me a little better, as it is crucial that you feel at ease with your personal physician.

Biography

I was born in Baltimore, Maryland, and graduated from Dartmouth College with a bachelor's degree in mathematics. After I completed my internal medicine training at Parkland Hospital-Dallas in 1980, I returned to Baltimore, where I worked in an inner-city clinic and at the Baltimore Public Health Service Hospital, to fulfill my obligation to the US Public Health Service Scholarship Program. I completed my infectious disease fellowship in 1984, at the University of Maryland. I subsequently , and became a partner in a multispecialty group in Houston, Texas. After five years with that group, I came to Southern California in 1989, to join Kaiser Permanente in Orange County.

About my practice

I am the division coordinator for the Infectious Disease Division. Our group includes six physicians, one nurse practitioner, a part-time HIV pharmacist, and several capable support staff members. We provide both inpatient and outpatient infectious disease consult services. I am a member of the board of directors of the AIDS Services Foundation Orange County and am active in HIV education and fundraising.
