Kaiser Permanente physician
My gender: Male
Accepting new patients.
Hello, and welcome to the Kaiser Permanente Colton Medical Offices. I have been a practicing pediatrician since 2001.
I grew up in Michigan and moved to California when I started medical school at Loma Linda University in 1998. I returned to Michigan for residency training but missed the wonderful California geography and weather. I am blessed enough to be married to my beautiful wife. Currently we have two wonderful sons that have taught me a lot about caring for my Pediatric patients.
I want to be your partner in your child’s health. Preventive medicine is a high priority for me, and I encourage a healthy lifestyle for families because it is so important to a child's long-term well being. There are times when your child will get sick, and we want to be there to help you along during those more stressful moments. There are other times when a parent needs just simple reassurance, and we are there for that, too. I try to practice evidence-based medicine, which means practicing the type of medicine that has been shown to be most effective.
I thrive by exercise and maintaining a healthy diet. I enjoy hiking in the mountains, swimming, paddle boarding, and mountain and road biking. I hope to take up woodworking soon.
