About me

I am happy to welcome you to learn a little about my practice and me. I’m one of the cardiac anesthesiologists in the Kaiser Permanente cardiac surgery program.

Biography

I am originally from the Bronx, New York, and have been practicing cardiac anesthesia at Kaiser Permanente’s Los Angeles Medical Center since 1988. I enjoy people and am happy to make them feel comfortable, relaxed, and well informed before their surgery. My wife is from Japan, and we met while living in Mexico. We have one son. As a result, we have a multicultural family with influences from the United States, Japan, and Mexico.

About my practice

I think our team is wonderful. We have a small group of anesthesiologists in the cardiac group as well as a small number of cardiac surgeons. There are also some physician assistants, cardiac operating room nurses, and perfusionists (people who operate the heart-lung machine during surgery). Many of us have worked together for a long time, and, as a result, we are like a close-knit family.

How I thrive

I generally try to live my life by spiritual principles. I begin and end each day with a prayer and a moment of silent meditation, hoping that the next 24 hours will be fruitful. I am a believer in the concept that our physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual states are all intimately related and that there needs to be a balance and the right blending of these states in order to achieve well-being. I exercise five to six times a week by running, weightlifting, or playing golf or ice hockey. I also try to eat and sleep well, and I try to be good to my family, friends, colleagues, and patients. I base my life on honesty, love, kindness, and tolerance.
