Kaiser Permanente physician
My gender: Male
Accepting new patients. Referral may be required.
Welcome to my Web page. I’m happy to have this chance to introduce myself to you and tell you about my practice. I feel fortunate to be part of Kaiser Permanente and work with such a great group of colleagues.
I am a native Southern Californian. I was born at Kaiser Permanente’s Panorama City Medical Center and grew up as a Kaiser Permanente member. Even when I was a young child I knew that I wanted to be a doctor. I knew that I wanted to be able to make a real difference in people’s lives, and practicing medicine gives me that opportunity.
Emergency medicine as a career is a very special opportunity to connect to and help people in a meaningful way, utilizing medical skills and knowledge, but also listening and responding to what members need. It’s a privilege to help members understand what they may not grasp at first, 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. I strive to treat them as I would my own family.
I try to incorporate the Kaiser Permanente philosophy of promoting health in mind, body, and spirit into my life every day. My family life is my major priority. I enjoy spending time with them, going to the park, beach and zoo, or any place willing to accommodate my three enthusiastic children. I also enjoy sporting activities such as volleyball, basketball, and running half marathons.
