Kaiser Permanente physician
My gender: Male
Accepting new patients.
Welcome to my Web page. I’m happy to have this chance to introduce myself and tell you about my practice. I feel very fortunate to work at Kaiser Permanente because of my wonderful colleagues and patients, and I look forward to working with you to care for your health.
I have wanted to be a physician since I was in the ninth grade, when my dad suffered a fatal stroke. As an immigrant to the United States, I realized the importance of helping others who did not understand the medical systems here or could not speak English well enough to access care. I wanted to help bridge that gap by going into medicine.
I consider medicine to be a very special opportunity to connect with and help people in meaningful ways by utilizing my medical skills and knowledge but also really listening to what patients say they need. It is a privilege to help my patients understand what concerns them, facilitate getting them the appropriate evaluations, and communicate with them and their families. I feel very honored that patients have entrusted me with their care and strive to treat them as I would my own family.
I firmly believe in Kaiser Permanente’s philosophy of health in body, mind, and spirit, and I let it guide my daily life. My family is my highest priority outside of work. I enjoy family outings to the beautiful beaches of California. My wife and I enjoy working out together, cycling, and quiet time at home with our two dogs.
