Where I practice
Welcome to my Web page. I am happy to have this chance to introduce myself to you and tell you about my practice. I feel very fortunate to work at Kaiser Permanente because of my wonderful colleagues and members like you. I look forward to working with you to care for your health.
I appreciate the opportunities here in the United States. I attended school here but have always remembered my roots. Without my parents' sacrifices, I would not be where I am. By watching them, I learned about helping others. Medicine was an easy choice. It gives me great pleasure to help and provide comfort when people need it most.
About my practice
Medicine as a career is a very special opportunity to connect with and help people in a meaningful way, not only utilizing my medical skills and knowledge, but also listening and responding to what members need. Being a physician allows people to share with me their fears and hopes. It is a privilege to help members understand what concerns them, translate what they may not grasp, get them appropriate evaluations, and communicate with them and their families. I feel very honored that members have entrusted me with their care and strive to treat them as I would my own family.
How I thrive
I firmly believe in the Kaiser Permanente philosophy of health in mind, body, and spirit, and I try to live it in my life every day. My family life is my major priority. I enjoy family outings to soccer games. My wife, two sons, and I enjoy summer camping trips to Mammoth Lakes, as well as quiet family time at home.
