Kaiser Permanente physician
My gender: Male
Accepting new patients. Referral may be required.
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.
After finishing my undergraduate education at Stanford University as a psychology major, and a few other detours — including backpacking in the West, a year with AmeriCorp, and working as a kindergarten teaching assistant — I changed course and decided to pursue a career in medicine. This led to medical school at the University of Pennsylvania, a surgical intern year at University of California - San Francisco, and an otolaryngology/head and neck surgery residency at Kaiser Permanente in Oakland. It was there that I became a great fan of the Kaiser Permanente system and jumped at the chance to continue working at Kaiser Permanente in San Diego.
I am part of a great team of head and neck surgeons, physician assistants, and nurses in our department. I treat a full range of ear, nose, and throat conditions in both children and adults. My days are split between seeing patients in the medical facility and operating. I also am part of our skin cancer team, and help with the surgical management of complex skin cancer.
I thrive by having a great job that makes me want to come to work every day. I am grateful for my wonderful wife and 3 young children. I also try to stay active by fitting in a swim or some kind of exercise a few times a week.
