Kaiser Permanente physician
My gender: Male
Not accepting new patients. Please call 1-888-956-1616.
I feel that the best medicine happens when members and physicians share the same goals and perspective. I hope you find this Web page informative and if you feel that we're a good match, I look forward to meeting you!
I am originally from Northern California, but have been in San Diego since 2004, and I am loving it! My wife, also a Kaiser Permanente family physician, is a native San Diegan. We have two wonderful children, one boy and one girl. My major hobbies are cooking, sleight-of-hand card magic, golfing and landscape oil painting.
I feel privileged to be working with the family medicine residency team at the Clairemont Mesa Medical Offices. You can expect an environment of practical academic medicine in my office, where I see entire families with members of all ages. I enjoy working closely with my nurses and medical assistants to address member concerns while providing quality care. Many of my patients are welcomed with a card trick! Ask me to show you one when you see me.
For me, living well requires balance. As you can tell from my hobbies, I have a wide range of interests. My diverse experience has helped me to relate well with my patients. As a cook, I understand that the tastiest food may not be the best for your health, but I may be able to help make your healthy foods taste better! Golfing is fun, but it may not involve enough exercise. I try to maximize my opportunities for exercise by picking up the pace when I walk, and I always carry my own bags (no golf carts for me). To relax, I enjoy tai chi and meditation.
