Greetings! I hope that all is well with you! Welcome to my Web page. I am a family physician who enjoys practicing holistic preventative medicine. I believe in the connection of a healthy mind, body, and spirit. I am the first physician in my family. My mother, who is a retired nurse, encouraged me to pursue this field. I am married to a lovely wife and two equally as lovely boys to come home to each day.
I am a graduate of UCLA. Go Bruins! I attended Midwestern University, Chicago College of Osteopathic Medicine for my Doctor of Osteopathic Degree; I then completed my family medicine residency at Arrowhead Regional Medical Center. I worked as an assistant professor at Western University, teaching the Essentials of Clinical Medicine courses for medical students, who have now become my colleagues here at Kaiser Permanente Ontario Medical Center and others! What a great feeling to watch them succeed! I also worked at Loma Linda University as a clinician teaching medical students, interns, residents, physician assistants, and pharmacy students during clinical and/or hospital rounds. I had the opportunity to watch many graduate and see even one of my former interns blossom into the Medical Director of the Family Medicine Department at Loma Linda Medical Center! Eventually, I went to work at a multi-disciplinary private group practice for a few years before transitioning to this closer medical group to call home, especially after the birth of my two young boys. It's been a great bonus being able to work closer to home!
My very proactive team will strive to provide excellent service and care for your every health need. We will listen first and then ask pertinent questions afterwards.
I enjoy spending time at home with family, traveling, exercising, and volunteering at my local church. I love to play all percussion instruments and taste new foods when given the opportunity. I like playing volleyball, softball, basketball, ping pong, and badminton. I also enjoy hiking the local mountains and beaches. Life, such a blessing to be part of it all!
