Kaiser Permanente physician
My gender: Male
Accepting new patients.
Welcome to my Web page. I’m happy to have this chance to introduce myself to you and your children, and tell you about my practice. I feel very fortunate to work at Kaiser Permanente because of my wonderful colleagues and patients, and look forward to working with you to care for your children’s health.
I am a native Southern Californian who grew up always near the ocean, except for my years at medical school. By middle school I knew that I wanted to be a pediatrician, hoping to serve the Hispanic families who lived in neighborhoods near our home. Practicing medicine gives me the opportunity to improve the health of kids and help families grow in a healthy way.
Like most pediatricians, I feel that preventive care is the best way to stay healthy, but I’m also here to help you when your child is sick. The best way to take good care of your child is for you and me to work in partnership, with your active participation in taking care of your child’s health. Good communication with each other will allow this to happen. Bring your questions with you to your visits! I feel honored that you have entrusted me with the care of your child and will always try to provide the same care as I would to my own family.
As a father of five (!) kids, I’ve learned the importance of health and activity in keeping both me and my children always growing toward the future. My family is my life priority. Between work and home, though, I still get some time to enjoy sailing, as well as those rare but wonderful quiet moments of family time at home.
