Where I practice
I’m glad to have the opportunity to present my credentials to you and share other information about myself. It’s very important that you feel comfortable with your oncologist, and I hope this page will help you start to get to know me.
I was born and raised in Wisconsin. I said goodbye to the snow when I attended college at UC Berkeley. It was at Berkeley that I became interested in medical research. I completed a combined MD and PhD program at Tulane University in New Orleans (the food drove me down South). I retuned to California to complete my residency in internal medicine at the Scripps Clinic in La Jolla. I completed my subspecialty training in hematology and medical oncology at the University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center. I am board certified in both disciplines.
About my practice
I have been practicing both hematology and medical oncology at Kaiser Permanente for nine years. Most of my time is spent caring for patients who have cancer. I see all different types of cancers in my practice. However, the most common types I see and treat are breast, lung, colon, and prostate.
How I thrive
I really enjoy most type of athletics and would rather engage in sports rather then be a spectator. I started running marathons a few years back with a goal to complete a marathon on every continent (I have a ways to go, and yes, Antarctica would be the last one). I also like to bike and swim. I have participated in several triathlons and even swam across the San Francisco Bay last year. Before work, you might find me in a yoga studio or a Cross Fit gym as the sun rises over this incredible city.
