Where I practice
Welcome. I’m glad to have the opportunity to introduce myself to you. I truly feel very fortunate to be working at Kaiser Permanente. I have been a part of this organization for over 13 years, and I cannot think of a better place to practice medicine. I am proud of what we have accomplished and excited about the new changes that are ahead of us.
I was born in Johannesburg, South Africa, and immigrated to the United States when I was 11. My first job, at the age of 15, was cleaning dishes and preparing food in the dietary department at St. John’s Hospital. I eventually worked on the floors handing out trays and later became a nurse’s aide and EMT (emergency medical technician). I loved that experience, which changed my life and motivated me to continue to medical school. I attended USC for both undergraduate and medical school and completed my residency in emergency medicine at Martin Luther King Jr./Drew Medical Center. I married a wonderful woman soon after my residency, and now we have two spectacular boys, who are a true joy.
About my practice
I feel honored to be a physician. Emergency medicine is extremely interesting and satisfying. I enjoy working as part of a team. I love meeting new people, hearing about their lives, and providing compassionate care during an illness. I cannot think of anything else that I would rather do, and I strive to provide the best care possible.
How I thrive
My spare time is devoted to spending time with family and friends. My two little boys have very full schedules (more than I can remember having as a child). Both my wife and I are at all their activities (soccer, T-ball, basketball, school functions). We love going away on family vacations. I love to exercise, and I’m at the gym two to three times a week. I find working out to be a source of relaxation and a great way to maintain my health.
