Kaiser Permanente physician
My gender: Male
Accepting new patients. Referral may be required.
Welcome! I appreciate the opportunity to introduce myself and provide a brief overview of my practice here at Woodland Hills.
I was born and raised in a small town in Iowa, but our family eventually made our way to Texas. I completed my undergraduate studies at Rice University and stayed in Houston for medical school at the University of Texas. I trained in both general surgery and plastic surgery in Southern California and I have made Los Angeles my home.
My primary goal is to understand the needs of each individual patient. I will spend time listening to your concerns and hope that each member's experience is personal and positive. My partners and I focus on many aspects of reconstructive plastic surgery. My clinical interests include breast reconstruction, including microvascular and implant-based reconstruction, but it is a privilege to practice the entire spectrum of our specialty.
I focus first on my family-- my wife and three young daughters. I love to exercise, travel, read and spend time with close family and friends. I feel fortunate to live in the heart of one of the world's great cities, and I enjoy exploring all that Los Angeles has to offer.
