Where I practice
Welcome to my Web page. I am one of the more than 30 radiologists in the Diagnostic Imaging Department here at Kaiser Permanente's San Diego Medical Center. We participate in the care of almost every Kaiser Permanente member and, although we meet very few of you, we hope to have a positive impact on your health and your Kaiser Permanente experience.
My wife and I have three daughters. School, homework, and soccer take up most of our time. I coach club soccer and all three of my daughters play soccer competitively. Like most soccer families, weekends are now consumed with games, tournaments, and the associated travel and we love it!
About my practice
Technology has impacted radiology as much or more than any other field of medicine. The detail offered by our advanced CT scanners, MRI units, and ultrasound machines allows us to make highly specific, precise, and clinically relevant diagnoses. This allows physicians to spend more of their time providing care. We radiologists work as a team and routinely seek the opinions of our fellow radiologists, particularly in complicated cases. Drawing upon the expertise of our partners affords greater diagnostic accuracy and significantly improves patient care.
How I thrive
I am enjoy time spent with coaching and watching my daughters competitions.
