About me

Welcome to my Web page. I’m pleased to have this opportunity to introduce myself.

Biography

I grew up and went to school on the East Coast. I moved to Los Angeles in 1985 to do my residency in psychiatry at Los Angeles County+USC Medical Center. Los Angeles seduced me with the fact that I could go to the beach in February without freezing, so I stayed after finishing my residency. I worked in several public and private settings before coming to Kaiser Permanente in 1993—I’ve worked here ever since. My only regrets about staying on the West Coast are that the pizza really is better in New York, and I’ve yet to run across a place that makes a credible Philly cheesesteak. Kaiser Permanente has afforded me the opportunity to work with a terrific group of psychiatrists, as well as the ability to work closely with colleagues in other specialties in caring for members.

About my practice

I have a somewhat atypical practice at Kaiser Permanente. I work mostly as a consulting psychiatrist. I see people in crisis in our Emergency Department, and also people who are hospitalized and have psychiatric issues that need addressing.

How I thrive

At this stage of my life, balancing my professional and family life is paramount to me. I meditate daily. I take our two dogs on a dawn patrol walk every morning, much to their consternation. I snowboard (sort of) when there is snow on the local mountains. Most of all, I make sure I have time for my wife and kids.
