Kaiser Permanente physician
My gender: Male
Accepting new patients.
Hello and welcome. My job as a physician is to listen to you and together with you develop a treatment plan that motivates you to become involved in your own health care. I take care of the whole person and I like to establish a good relationship with you and your family.
I practice as a personal (primary care) physician. I am board certified by the American Association of the Family Practice and a member of American Medical Association. I completed my medical residency training program at the University of Oklahoma. I am a caring physician who respects the individuality of each person I treat, whatever their life choices and beliefs, and I make their care my primary concern.
Medicine as a career is a very special opportunity to connect with and help people in a meaningful way, utilizing medical skills and knowledge, but also listening and responding to what they need. Being a doctor allows people to share with me their innermost secrets, fears, and hopes; it is a privilege to help people understand what concerns them, translate what they may not grasp, facilitate getting them the appropriate evaluations, and communicate with them and their families. I feel very honored that members have entrusted me with their care and strive to treat them as I would my own family.
I firmly believe in Kaiser Permanente’s philosophy of health in mind, body, and spirit, and try to live it in my life every day. To stay balanced, I enjoy traveling, listening to music, biking, swimming, and spending time with family and friends.
