Where I practice
Welcome to my Web page. I’m happy to have this chance to introduce myself to you and tell you about my practice. I feel privileged to work at Kaiser Permanente because of my terrific colleagues and our wonderful members.
I moved from Boston to Los Angeles to attend medical school and fell in love with the sunny weather. After that, I made Southern California my home for good. I’m married and have a growing family of my own with three sons. I volunteer for Hombro a Hombro, an organization that works to promote health in countries such as Honduras and Brazil. I continue to be an attending physician and a volunteer faculty member for UCLA and USC medical students. I love teaching what I’ve learned over the years.
About my practice
A medical career is a very special opportunity to connect to people in a meaningful way by utilizing medical skills and knowledge, but also by listening and responding to what people need. As a doctor, people often feel comfortable sharing their fears and hopes with me. It‘s a privilege to help members understand what concerns them, explain aspects of their situation that may be hard to grasp, get the appropriate evaluations, and communicate with them and their families. I feel honored that members entrust me with their care and I strive to treat them as I would my own family. I feel that healthy living and preventive care are the best ways to stay healthy, but I’m also here to help you when you are sick. I want to be your partner in health, and it helps me better care for you when you are actively involved in taking care of your health.
How I thrive
My family life is very important to me. I enjoy family outings, I coaching my sons' soccer team, and remain ingactive by doing exercises at home. I occasionally unwind by getting together with other musicians and playing my drums. My wife, three sons, and I enjoy summer camping trips to Yosemite and quiet family time at home.
