Kaiser Permanente physician
My gender: Male
Accepting new patients. Referral may be required.
Welcome to my Web page. I'm happy to have this chance to introduce myself and tell you about my practice. I feel very fortunate to work at Kaiser Permanente because of my wonderful colleagues and our members, and I look forward to working with you to care for your health.
I am a happy transplant to San Diego from the Midwest and East Coast. I was born and raised in Cleveland, Ohio. My father was a surgeon and my mother was a dietician. They inspired in me a love for science and healthy living. I had my medical school training at Northeastern Ohio Universities College of Medicine, my residency at Akron General Medical Center, and cardiology fellowship at The Washington Hospital Center in Washington, D.C. San Diego beckoned with its sunshine and warm winters, and I've found myself enjoying my new home.
I practice at the Kaiser Permanente San Diego Medical Center. I have a specific interest in congestive heart failure. I believe that setting a positive tone helps everyone on our team deliver sensitive and empathic care to our members.
At home, I exercise in some way every day. It can be playing tennis (a lifelong passion) or walking the dog with my wife. We enjoy creating fun and healthy meals in the kitchen together.
