Where I practice
Hello and welcome to my Web page. I am happy to have this chance to introduce myself and briefly tell you a little about my practice.
I am a native Northern Californian who grew up as a Kaiser Permanente member. After college, I left California to finish an M.D. Ph.D. dual degree focusing on the human body's innate immune system. I then returned to California to complete residency training in pediatrics. In 2011, I accepted a position in general pediatrics with Kaiser Permanente. I am married and have two young children with whom I spend nearly all of my free time.
About my practice
One of the great things about being a pediatrician is it allows me the opportunity to be part of a family's life as they see their child grow and develop. With that partnership, I want to promote a healthy lifestyle at each visit for good health today and for the future. I want to be your partner in healthy living, preventive care, and informed parenting when your child is healthy as well as when they are sick. My goal is to work together with you and keep open the lines of communication in the many years ahead of us.
How I thrive
Like many working parents, I face the challenge of balancing home and work life. So when I am not at work, my family is the way I live well. My wife and I love spending time with our two kids: playing with them, reading stories, and watching them grow.
