Kaiser Permanente physician
My gender: Male
Accepting new patients. Referral may be required.
Hello, and welcome to my Web page. I'm happy to have this chance to introduce myself to you and tell you about my work as a physician at Kaiser Permanente. I am an orthopedic surgeon and specialize in the treatment of conditions of the hand, elbow, and shoulder. I feel fortunate to be able to work at Kaiser Permanente, and I look forward to working with you to take care of your health.
I grew up in the San Fernando Valley. I attended college UCLA (Go Bruins!). Then I moved to Sacramento for medical school at UC Davis (Go Aggies!). My orthopedic surgery residency took me to the University of Arizona in Tucson (Go Wildcats!) I completed my training in Gainesville, FL, with a fellowship in Hand and Upper Extremity Surgery at the University of Florida (Go Gators!).
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 are not feeling your best. I want to be your partner in health, and it helps me better care for you when you are actively involved in taking care of your health. I will present you with surgical and non-surgical treatment options. I will give my recommendations, but I ultimately allow you to make your medical decisions with autonomy.
Keeping balance in my life is very important to me. I enjoy being active working out, running, swimming, and basketball. I also make it a priority to set aside time to just relax.
