About me

Welcome to my Kaiser Permanente Web page. I started here in 2011 and consider myself fortunate to be part of this fine organization.

Biography

I grew up in upstate New York in a little town called Sleepy Hollow. I spent my college years at Cornell University in Ithaca, New York, and moved on to medical school at SUNY Buffalo. No, I do not miss the cold and snow. From there, I trained for three years in internal medicine at the University of Rochester, and then made my big move to the West Coast. I completed a three-year fellowship in general cardiology, followed by a two-year fellowship in clinical cardiac electrophysiology, at the University of Washington in Seattle. I am happily married to an inspiring woman who practices as a life coach and cofounded the nonprofit Global Sorority, which serves to empower women around the world. We have two adorable dogs: a pit bull and a frenchie. They are a handful, to say the least. We all like taking walks on the beach. For fun, I golf infrequently, love to cook (vegan food), and love to travel.

About my practice

My practice is under the scope of Clinical Cardiac Electrophysiology. This means I treat both slow and fast cardiac rhythm disturbances. I spend about half of my time performing surgeries and ablations and the other half seeing patients in the clinic. My surgeries entail implantation of pacemakers, ICDs (implantable cardiac defibrillators), and other cardiac procedures. My job is intellectually and physically challenging, and because no two cases are the same, I am constantly engaged in what I do. The most rewarding aspect of my job is seeing how my patients’ lives can be bettered by treatment. This field is also on the cutting edge of technology, which to me is especially appealing. If we do not change, we cannot grow and progress.

How I thrive

I thrive by completely engaging myself in everything it is that I do, whether it’s work, making pizzas, or reading the latest nonfiction book. Both physical and spiritual well-being are essential to a satisfying and healthy work and life. This means making time for exercise and relaxation even when I don’t think I have that time to take. This is it. This is the life we have to shape anyway we want, and we are ultimately the ones in control. If I had one word to describe myself, it would be “passionate.”
