Where I practice
Welcome to my Web page. I’m a family physician and a proud member of the Family Medicine Department here in Orange County. I cannot imagine a better workplace for providing you with quality health care.
I once heard, "no advancement in medical treatment has ever decreased the incidence of a disease, only prevention can." That statement is a fancy way of saying, “an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure." That is essentially why I chose to be a family physician. I’d rather help you prevent diseases like diabetes, heart disease, or cancer than have you spend all your time and energy getting treatment.
About my practice
I practice at our Kaiser Permanente Tustin-Santa Ana Medical Offices—the location of our family medicine residency program. I’m one of the core faculty members for our residency program. I enjoy the intellectually stimulating and challenging setting of this office and my role as a faculty clinician. I believe that our scope of practice here is exceptional in that we see children, pregnant women, young adults, and geriatric members. My team and I believe in providing high-quality care to you and your family.
How I thrive
I live well by nurturing my marriage, my children, and my health. I enjoy tennis and golf, but I especially love vacationing with my family. My wife is an excellent role model for my children and me, as she exercises on a regular basis and encourages healthy nutrition for all of us. You know what they say, “married men live longer.” Not to sound too simplistic, but proper nutrition and regular exercise is the absolute key to health.
