Kaiser Permanente physician
My gender: Male
Accepting new patients. Referral may be required.
Welcome to my Web page. I’m glad to have the opportunity to present my credentials to you and share other information about myself. I hope this page will help you start to get to know me. I feel very fortunate to work at Kaiser Permanente.
I am a native Southern Californian and grew up in the San Gabriel Valley. I’ve always been interested in medicine and joined Kaiser Permanente in Los Angeles in 1991. I also enjoy doing research and teaching, so I also spend time at Olive View-UCLA Medical Center.
I feel that healthy living and preventive care are the best ways to stay healthy, but sickness is often unavoidable, and I am here for you under those circumstances as well. It continues to be a privilege for me to care for our Kaiser Permanente members.
I enjoy distance running and ran my first marathon in 1997 with my son. I have since completed more than 25 marathons and look forward to participating in many more. More recently, I have become interested in triathlon training. I have also been a surfer for many years. I enjoy playing guitar, piano, and violin (fiddle), and singing. I have played with other musicians from Kaiser Permanente at several member and employee functions. I especially enjoy spending time with my wife, kids, and grandkids!
