Hello! Welcome to my Web page, and thank you for visiting! I am happy for the opportunity to introduce myself and tell you more about my surgical practice. I look forward to helping you improve your health and to feel comfortable with your care and experience at Kaiser Permanente.
I was born in Illinois, spent my childhood years in Texas, and finally settled down in Southern California. I went to UC Irvine for undergraduate, medical school, and surgery residency training. I pursued further specialty training and completed a fellowship in minimally invasive advanced laparoscopy and bariatric surgery at UCSF Fresno. Afterwards, I joined Kaiser Permanente and am privileged to work with a spectacular team of surgeons. Our team is dedicated to providing you with the best care possible.
In my practice, the number one priority is to improve member health. Surgery is a journey that you and I will take together; you also will meet the fantastic surgical team in the office, clinic, operating rooms, nursing staff, and in the hospital. I will make sure that you will feel safe, comfortable, and satisfied with your care.
I thrive by making sure I have a good work/life balance and to always have a positive attitude in life. Spending time with my family, traveling, and enjoying the outdoors is how I relax. I love playing and watching sports, and hope my Lakers will take it all the way!
