Kaiser Permanente physician
My gender: Male
Accepting new patients.
Welcome! I love practicing pediatrics and hope that I can help your children thrive.
I was born in Arizona, raised in Nevada, and now I hope to be a San Diegan for the rest of my life. Prior to joining Kaiser Permanente, I studied marine biology, was a professional swing dancer, and worked in a community health clinic serving the underserved. My medical training in pediatrics was completed in Nevada and here in San Diego. I was fortunate enough to marry a wonderful San Diegan who was born in Mexico. As a result, my family spends significant time exploring our amazing country and the rich culture and diversity found in Mexico. We hope to always stay in San Diego and raise our two children here.
My focus is keeping your family healthy. I firmly believe in the protective benefits of vaccines, good diet, active lifestyle, and positive thoughts. The support staff, nurses, and fellow physicians that I work with at Kaiser Permanente are among the finest people I’ve ever met.
My family is the most important thing in my life. I thrive by playing with them, laughing with them, and loving them. I hope to be your doctor for a very long time, so I try to exercise and eat my fruits and veggies every day!
