Where I practice
Welcome to my Web page. I hope this gives you a good idea of who I am, my training and experience, and what my practice is like.
I was born and raised near Buffalo, New York. As a young boy, my model collection included the human body, heart, and eyeball. At Yale, I studied geology and chemistry. In medical school at SUNY Buffalo I loved anatomy, physiology, and biochemistry. I was most interested in lung disease. After my residency I studied lung disease full time at UCLA, then joined the UCLA faculty, became director of the intensive care unit (ICU), and came to oversee all respiratory and ICU services. I left UCLA after 24 years for Kaiser Permanente Woodland Hills Medical Center to help organize their ICU services. We have developed a great team that shares ideas, challenges, and successes with other ICU teams from around the country.
About my practice
I am blessed to work with a group of five other superb physicians. We divide our time between the intensive care unit, seeing hospitalized people with lung disease, and providing outpatient care to members with a wide variety of lung diseases. My job allows me to work as one of the leaders in the ICU and as a team member in the office. Moving from one setting to another each week provides a fresh set of challenges, rewarding experiences, and opportunities to work with members and their families.
How I thrive
Achieving balance and having the right priorities are important to me. Kaiser Permanente allows me to continue to enjoy the practice I have grown to love, and to spend time with my wife, son, new daughter-in-law and chocolate Lab. After work you may find me swimming at the local gym and enjoying a serving of chocolate milk afterward. Thrive! At home I may be doing chores around the house with my wife, exercising, or relaxing with a good book. I also like to visit the mountains with family and friends for camping or snowshoeing, target shoot with buddies, or socialize with neighbors or church friends.
