Kaiser Permanente physician
My gender: Male
Accepting new patients. Referral may be required.
Thank you for the opportunity to tell you about my background and practice. I hope this information will help you feel comfortable with the care I provide.
Though born in New York City, I spent the majority of my formative years growing up in the suburbs of New Jersey. After high school, I attended Yale University, where I majored in philosophy and sang with music groups including the Spizzwinks and Whiffenpoofs. After college, I attended medical school at the University of Pittsburgh, where I served as president of my class for all 4 years. Next, I traded northern winters for sunny Los Angeles, where I completed 6 years of residency training at the LAC+USC Medical Center. I had always felt that Kaiser Permanente’s approach to medicine would be a good fit for my style of practice and was lucky to have the opportunity to join the organization after I finished residency.
As a urologist, I have a wide and varied practice. I specialize in evaluation and treatment of a wide range of issues related to the kidneys, bladder, and male genitalia. Thus far, my practice has seen an emphasis on kidney stones and male urinary problems related to prostate enlargement. Treatment options for prostate enlargement include medication, Urolift implants, endoscopic prostate resection, and open enucleation. My team in Orange County takes special pride in delivering compassionate, quality care.
My wife and I are blessed with 2 children. Childrearing has been a challenging endeavor, but we stay balanced with regular exercise and sampling of the diverse cuisine of Southern California. I particularly enjoy playing squash and jogging. I am also on the lookout for a choral group to once again exercise my vocal cords.
