About me

Hi, I am Michael McBeth, MD, and welcome to my Web page. In the Anesthesiology/Interventional Pain Management Department, my goal is to alleviate the pain of patients who suffer from chronic pain and cancer. For 14 years, I have enjoyed working with Kaiser Permanente, both as a clinician and as an educator.


I grew up in Denver, Colorado, and learned to appreciate the outdoors at an early age. I joined the United States Navy after high school in order to see the world and ended up operating a nuclear power plant on a fast-attack submarine off the East Coast. Afterwards, I attended college and medical school at the University of Colorado (go Buffs!) through a Navy scholarship. Multiple deployments as a naval flight surgeon aboard aircraft carriers led me to six continents, including Europe, South America, Asia, Central America, as well as the Indian Ocean and Somalia. As a Naval Reserve officer, I served in Operation Iraqi Freedom with the United States Marine Corps, and I am now attached to the Naval Medical Center Department of Anesthesiology/Pain Medicine. I’ve been married to my wonderful wife for almost forty years, and we have two grown children of whom I am very proud. I enjoy baseball immensely and try to visit at least one major league baseball stadium every year with my family. I also enjoy hiking and fishing in the Sierras, playing guitar, and traveling to unusual places.

About my practice

I have worked as a board-certified anesthesiologist and fellowship-trained pain management physician for a total of 20 years, including 14 years at Kaiser Permanente in San Diego. I practice with an outstanding group of board-certified, fellowship-trained physicians, along with a wonderful, dedicated, and hardworking staff in the Interventional Pain Department at our Garfield Specialty Center. The department strives to include state-of-the-art interventional procedures and treatment of pain as a chronic disease. We evaluate and treat conditions such as cancer pain, chronic musculoskeletal disorders of the neck and back, extremity disorders such as complex regional pain syndromes, as well as a broad range of neuropathic pain. I also have the pleasure to teach resident physicians and postgraduate fellows at the Naval Medical Center.

How I thrive

I realize the importance of living a full and healthy life, which is why I chose to be a vegan, to exercise regularly, and to stand most of the day. I take time to enjoy traveling with my wife and family and to maximize my relaxing outdoor time (if you call backpacking and mountain biking relaxing). Life is a constant process of learning (which is why I love medicine). I also enrich my life with outdoor photography, cultural experiences, and the study of philosophy.
