Accepting new patients. Referral may be required.
Welcome to my Web page. I'm happy to have this chance to introduce myself to you and tell you about my work as a physician at Kaiser Permanente. I’m an anesthesiologist with sub-specialty training in interventional pain medicine. I’ve been a part of the health care team here at Kaiser Permanente in San Diego since 2002.
I have lived in California most of my life. I was inspired to pursue a career in medicine by close family members and friends who were wonderful role models for me. I feel very fortunate to work where I do because of my outstanding colleagues, as well as Kaiser Permanente’s commitment to high-quality medical care. I look forward to working with you to care for your health.
My practice focuses on interventional pain management, which uses different types of injections and other therapies to reduce a patient's pain level. In our practice we also help our members utilize resources here at Kaiser Permanente so that they can take an active role in managing their pain. We see members with a wide variety of pain disorders, including cancer pain. I’m passionate about end-of-life issues and how, as a physician, I can help improve my members' quality of life through interventional techniques.
Keeping balance in my life is very important to me. I maintain and continually develop my faith, my family relationships, and my favorite activities, which include enjoying good food, spending time with family and friends, traveling, and photography.
