Kaiser Permanente physician

Accepting new patients. Referral may be required.
Welcome to the vascular surgery division at Riverside Medical Center. I have had the opportunity to serve Kaiser Permanente members for over 10 years at this facility. It is my privilege, along with my associates, to assist you with vascular surgery conditions.
Since the time I was a teenager, I have wanted to be a doctor and a pilot. I have been blessed to have accomplished both goals. I thoroughly enjoy my real life as a surgeon and my other life as a pilot. In many respects the technical and intellectual demands are similarly challenging and rewarding. I am blessed with a wonderful wife who works as a research RN, and together we have five adult children and one terrific grandson.
In the vascular surgery division we work as a team for all major operations. Some of the more common operations that need our services are carotid endarterectomy and aortic aneurysm repair, both open and endovascular stent graft repair. We also do leg artery bypass and angioplasty, as well as vein surgery.
Healthful living with regular exercise and a mostly vegetarian diet have been important to me for my entire adult life. Regular church attendance with my wife is also a vital part of my thriving.
