About me

Hello, and welcome to the Learning and Development Clinic.


I joined Kaiser Permanente after a pediatric residency in Boston. I initially worked as a hospitalist (meaning I cared for patients who had been admitted to the hospital) at night, but after a few years I added classwork at UCLA for a master’s degree in public health. I was asked to join the neonatal group in 1983, and I’m now the administrative director of the Neonatal ICU. Five years ago, perceiving a need to increase support for children with learning/behavioral problems, I started the Learning and Development Clinic. Our clinic now covers the gamut from developmental assessments, high risk infant follow-up, weight/educational counseling and medication management, if needed. I was honored to receive the Exceptional Contribution for a physician in 2009 for my work in the neonatal intensive care unit and for developing the Learning and Development Clinic. I'm currently the co-chairman of the new regional Developmental and Behavioral Pediatric committee, working to share best practices and create consistency throughout the Southern California Permanente region.

About my practice

Our team includes a psychologist, nurse, administrative assistant, and myself. If a child is experiencing school problems, whether they involve performance, behavior, or both, we receive a referral. A packet, which is to be completed by the parents and by the child’s teachers, is mailed home. Once it’s complete, the family is contacted for an appointment. The psychologist and I review the information. Along with an interview with the child and the family, we try to identify any issues and develop, with the family, a treatment plan. Our goal is to help each of the children maximize their potential and level the academic playing field. I recently was invited to participate in a panel discussing child psychopharmacology with the American Academy of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry, even though I practice behavioral pediatrics rather than psychiatry.

How I thrive

When I’m away from work, I focus on my family. I have two sons, and my wife is an obstetrician and gynecologist with Kaiser Permanente. While all three of them are swimmers, I take to the mountain trails and hike, which keeps me healthy and gives me some clarity. Both my sons are now in college. My oldest is studying cultural anthropology at Cal State Long Beach, and my youngest is studying nuclear engineering in the School of Engineering at UC Berkeley.
