Kaiser Permanente physician
My gender: Male
Not accepting new patients. Please call 1-888-956-1616.
Hello, and welcome to my Web page. You can find some information about me and some links to websites that may help you and I manage your health together.
I grew up in the East County part of San Diego, in the San Carlos neighborhood. I received my Bachelor of Science degree in biological psychology at UC Santa Barbara. I received an MBA in information systems and health services administration at USC, and then earned my medical degree at Temple University in Philadelphia. I completed my residency in family medicine back where I started, in East County at Sharp Grossmont Hospital. I have been at Kaiser Permanente since then.
My office staff and I work as a team to care for our patients. Rest assured that we are all working together to provide you with high-quality care. If you haven't yet registered at kp.org, please do so. Many of my patients enjoy being able to email me though the Web site. Even on the days when I have to be out of the office for a meeting, I’m usually able to check my email, so feel free to email my office with any routine questions.
I believe in practicing what I preach. I’m a pescatarian, which means I am a vegetarian who also eats fish. I exercise daily. I also lift weights regularly, and I enjoy most outdoor sports, including body surfing, mountain biking, and hiking. I’m always happy to talk with you at any time about healthful living, diet, and exercise. I look forward to seeing you at your next visit.
