Welcome to my Web page. Take a look below and see what you think. As a Kaiser Permanente physician I encourage and welcome electronic and Web-based interactions in addition to the more traditional office and medical center interfaces.
I've spent more time in Southern California than any other part of the country, although I was born and raised in the Midwest. I enjoy the active Southern California lifestyle with the mix of the "hustle and bustle" of an urban environment. It's great to be able to spend nearly 365 days a year outdoors (although a busy surgical practice keeps me indoors more often than not).
I specialize in sports medicine with approximately 90 percent of my practice in knee and shoulder injuries and issues. As a competitive athlete I relate well to other athletes and others with athletic-type injuries.
I am a competitive triathlete and runner. It's been very exciting to compete wearing the Kaiser Permanente Thrive jersey in the Kaiser Permanente Los Angeles Triathlon over five years of our Kaiser Permanente/Los Angeles Triathlon partnership. We are all busy people and it's certainly not easy to find the necessary training time to put in before the competitions and races, but I feel most invigorated during these training sessions.
