About me

Greetings and welcome to my Web page. The relationship between a surgeon and his patient is a special one because I get to see a part of the member that probably no one gets to see. There’s a tremendous bond that is forged. It’s privilege and an honor to gain the trust of a member and become his or her surgeon.

Biography

I was originally born in Chicago, Illinois, and I knew I wanted to be a surgeon when I was very young. I moved out to beautiful Southern California for the weather and the beautiful scenery. I have three kids and a very understanding, beautiful, and supportive wife. Without them, I’m nothing.

About my practice

Effective and clear communication, along with honesty, is essential to a successful relationship. My goal is to treat every member as if they were part of my own family. I’m fortunate to be part of the Kaiser Permanente team, which allows me the freedom to practice medicine to the best of my ability and knowledge.

How I thrive

If I’m not working at the hospital, I try to spend as much time as I can with my family. I also try to play racquetball and tennis every week. I’m also an avid skier and love the Lakers—even through the tough, miserable times.
