Kaiser Permanente physician
My gender: Male
Accepting new patients. Referral may be required.
Hello! I'm happy to have this chance to introduce myself to you and tell you about my practice. I feel very fortunate to work at Kaiser Permanente because of my wonderful colleagues and patients, and I look forward to working with you to improve your health.
I'm originally from Seattle but made my way to Los Angeles for my medical education and training. I now live in Los Angeles with my wife and two daughters. I became a doctor because of the unique opportunity to build an intimate, healing relationship with patients while incorporating scientific principles of biology and physiology.
My practice centers around the treatment of hormonal and metabolic conditions, including thyroid, diabetes, pituitary, adrenal, osteoporosis, parathyroid, and transgender care. A large portion of my job is helping patients to understand the important interplay between lifestyle choices, health, and well-being.
I enjoy getting outside to run or hike as a means of exercising to stay fit but also getting fresh air and being more connected to the world around me. I try to read on various topics—both medical and non-medical—on a fairly regular basis, and enjoy family activities such as going to the park, the beach, or free concerts.
