Kaiser Permanente physician
My gender: Male
Accepting new patients. Referral may be required.
Welcome to my Web page. I'm happy to give you the opportunity to get to know me. I hope this page gives you a flavor of my practice and philosophy, and allows you to feel comfortable receiving your health care from me.
I grew up in Southern California and have enjoyed the many outdoor activities—running, hiking, skating—that this type of weather allows. It's a cliché, but I have wanted to be a physician since I was a child, likely from the inspiring role models I had when I was young.
I have always admired the personal aspects and humanism embodied by medicine, virtues that have driven me through my medical training. I suppose that one day a computer will be asked to diagnose and treat the diseases we encounter. However, I prefer to be there to support and guide my patients through the difficulties and fears that they may face.
I strongly support Kaiser Permanente's drive to provide a balanced lifestyle for its employees. My family is the most important and treasured aspect of my life. I enjoy walks in the park, eclectic cooking, and road trips with them. My private time is spent dabbling in my various hobbies. I believe that strong personal well-being leads to more energy devoted to one's work, and a better ability to empathize with one's patients.
