Where I practice
Hi, I’m Charlie! 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 a board-certified emergency medicine physician and have practiced for more than 10 years. In 2012, I transitioned into my current role as an associate partner. I feel fortunate to be able to work at Kaiser Permanente as a clinician who is working to make our organization the best health care delivery system in the country.
I’ve wanted to be a physician since I was 12 years old and I came across an auto accident that had critical victims in need of immediate help. I then realized I wanted the knowledge to be able to help those in similar situations.
About my practice
Being a physician is a vocation that allows me to connect with people in a meaningful way. Being a doctor allows people to share with me intimate details of their lives in order for me to provide the best care I can. It’s a privilege to help members understand what concerns them, translate what they may not understand, get them appropriate evaluations, and communicate with them and their families. I feel very honored that members have entrusted me with their care, and I strive to treat them as I would my own family.
How I thrive
I firmly believe in Kaiser Permanente's philosophy of health in mind, body, and spirit, and try to live it in my life every day. My family life is my major priority. I enjoy family outings to the beach, I volunteer for my kids’ swim meets, and I try to remain active by playing tennis, surfing, skiing, and jogging.
