Welcome to my Web page. I'm happy to have this chance to introduce myself to you and tell you about my practice.
I moved from New York to Los Angeles for a fellowship in pediatric anesthesiology at Children's’ Hospital Los Angeles but fell in love with the sunny weather and made Southern California my home for good. Even when I was a young child, I knew that I wanted to be a doctor, in part because of the compassionate care I saw my grandmother receive in the last few years of her life. I knew that I wanted to be able to make a real difference in people's lives, and practicing medicine gives me that opportunity.
As an anesthesiologist, I have a special opportunity to help people. Many people aren't familiar with anesthesiology, so I'm happy to answer any questions they might have and help them understand the procedure they'll be experiencing. I feel privileged that patients have entrusted me with their care, and I strive to give them the highest quality service and care.
I enjoy family outings to Dodger games, I referee for my sons' Little League baseball games, and I try to remain active with my local softball team. My wife, son, and daughter and I enjoy summer camping trips to Lake Tahoe and quiet family time at home. I also make it a priority to set aside time to just relax or read a good novel.
