Welcome to my Web page! I am happy to have the opportunity to introduce myself and tell you about my practice as a pediatrician. I'm fortunate to work at Kaiser Permanente because of my excellent colleagues and our wonderful members. I look forward to working with you to deliver the best health care to your child.
I am a native Southern Californian who grew up as a Kaiser Permanente member. After an undergraduate career at UCLA, I headed to the Midwest to complete medical school in St. Louis. Missing the sunny California skies, I returned to Los Angeles to complete my pediatrics training at UCLA Medical Center. I've been helping patients as a Kaiser Permanente physician since 2003. In 2012, I assumed the role of program director for the Pediatric Residency Training Program at Kaiser Permanente Los Angeles Medical Center, and oversee the education and clinical supervision of interns, residents, and medical students.
Healthy living and preventive care are the best ways to stay well, but I'm also here to help you when your child becomes sick. I want to be your partner in health, and it helps me better care for your family when you are actively involved in your family's own health care.
I'm a fan of the philosophy of health in body, mind, and spirit. In addition to my clinical and academic endeavors, my family life is my highest priority. We enjoy following local sports teams, trying new cuisines, and taking a daily stroll around the park. Most of the time, I just enjoy quiet family time at home with my wife and daughters.
