About me

Welcome. I am a new surgical associate at Kaiser Permanente Los Angeles Medical Center where I specialize in acute care surgery and critical care. I would like to share my credentials and a little bit about myself.


I grew near Poughkeepsie, New York, but I have lived all over the United States. I have always had a keen interest in the sciences and wanted to be a doctor since seventh grade. I majored in biophysical chemistry at Dartmouth College, then went to SUNY Upstate Medical University in Syracuse, New York for medical school. I completed my general surgery residency and did two years of cardiac research at Emory. I then began a cardiothoracic surgery fellowship at Vanderbilt University, but decided to change my focus. I stayed on at Vanderbilt to complete an anesthesia critical care fellowship and, most recently, spent one year at Washington University in St. Louis as a junior faculty member in the division of acute and critical care surgery. My wife and I met in Nashville, but she is from Monterey, California. I also love California, so we were fortunate that I found my perfect job at Kaiser Permanente Los Angeles Medical Center.

About my practice

I am board certified in both general surgery and surgical critical care. My practice is exclusively inpatient, consisting of acute care surgery (ACS) and critical care (ICU). The surgical part of my practice entails caring for patients that have emergent or urgent surgical problems and my goal is to care for those patients expeditiously to resolve the problem that brings them in to the hospital. The most common operations I do are removal of the gallbladder and appendix, bowel obstructions, and hernia repairs. The critical care portion of my practice involves caring for very ill patients in the intensive care unit such as those on the ventilator, with bleeding or sepsis, as well as those undergoing cardiac surgery.

How I thrive

My wife and I enjoy traveling, cooking, visiting friends and family, and being physically active. I love spending time in the outdoors and particularly enjoy hiking and mountaineering.
