Hello, and welcome to my Web page. I am here to help you with your healthcare needs, and I look forward to working together with you to take care of your health.
I grew up in Los Angeles, and attended UC Berkeley for my undergraduate degree (Go Bears!). I took two years off after college, and then started my medical training at Keck School of Medcine of USC. I then completed my residency training in family medicine at White Memorial. I chose to pursue medicine because of my love for the sciences and the unique opportunity to help others in very profound ways. I come from a large family and now have a growing family of my own. During my free time, I enjoy the outdoors, working out, watching baseball, and spending time with my beautiful wife and son.
I am a firm believer in the saying: “An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.” Only through prevention can we prevent the onset of chronic health problems. I believe that healing and staying healthy is influenced greatly by the interaction between the mind, body, and spirit, so I try to help my patients achieve a good balance in these three areas. I feel very honored that patients have entrusted me with their care and strive to treat them as I would my own family.
Keeping balance in my life is very important to me. Outside of work, I like to stay active and spend time with my family. I like exploring new foods and cultures. I especially like travelling and getting to know new places.
