Kaiser Permanente physician
My gender: Male
Accepting new patients. Referral may be required.
Welcome to my Web page! I’m a hospitalist—I care for members who are hospitalized at the Kaiser Permanente Downey Medical Center. I’m glad to have this opportunity to introduce myself as a part of the team of physicians, nurses, and staff who will be partnering with you for your health care needs.
Over the course of my education, I’ve been back and forth between the coasts. I was raised in Philadelphia during my early childhood, though we eventually moved to Los Angeles. After spending my undergraduate years in Baltimore and medical school in New York, I returned to Southern California for my residency. I feel fortunate to be able to settle and practice medicine in Southern California—nothing beats the weather here!
As a hospitalist, I see members only when they’re in the hospital—I don’t have an office outside the hospital. I’m part of a large team of physicians, nurses, and ancillary staff who help care for our members. I’ve learned to really appreciate the benefits of our electronic health records—they us communicate across your health care team, and also with you—the member.
My current passions include cycling, running, and swimming. I also plan to participate in triathlons in the future.
