Kaiser Permanente physician
My gender: Male
Accepting new patients. Referral may be required.
Thank you for taking the time to visit my Web page. I feel privileged to work at Kaiser Permanente because of the wonderful people I get to work with and the wonderful members I get to take care of every day. I look forward to meeting you and working with you to care for your health.
I am originally from Northern California, where I also completed my undergraduate education. I always wanted to become a doctor as a means of helping people, and I began my medical journey at medical school in upstate New York. I then completed my surgical training in Southern California after which I joined Kaiser Permanente.
I believe that every member should be treated and cared for as if they were family, and that is my overriding philosophy when caring for my patients. I practice a wide scope of general surgery, incorporating minimally invasive techniques whenever possible. It is important to me that my patients have a very good understanding of their problem and the options that are available to them for treatment.
I thrive every day by maintaining a healthy, well-balanced diet and participating in activities that I enjoy such as exercise, running, golf, and time outdoors. Healthy living to me also includes spending time with my family and friends.
