Where I practice
Welcome to my Web page. I’m happy to have this chance to introduce myself to you and tell you about my practice. I look forward to working with you to care for your health.
I have lived in many different countries all over the world, on both coasts of the United States as well as in the Midwest. This has afforded me the opportunity and privilege to interact with people of many different nationalities and cultures. I went into the field of medicine because I wanted to combine my interest in science with my desire to meaningfully affect someone else's life in a positive manner. Who could ask for a better career? I completed my fellowship in gastroenterology and hepatology from UC Irvine in 2002. Shortly thereafter, I joined Kaiser Permanente. I feel very fortunate to work at Kaiser Permanente because this organization allows me to practice medicine in a supportive environment that fosters ongoing education and learning.
About my practice
In my practice, I try to make every effort to explain everything you need to know about your condition, treatment, and medications. I truly believe that a member who is educated about his or her condition is better able to participate in his or her own medical health. I also ask that you do your part in your treatment program by complying with your prescribed treatment, medications, and follow-up visits. I make every attempt possible to keep up with the latest medical literature so that the care we provide for you here at Kaiser Permanente is high-quality and cutting-edge.
How I thrive
I’m passionate about my career, but my family always comes first. We enjoy traveling the world and learning about different cultures. We are all very health-conscious and work out together at the gym regularly. We enjoy playing as well as watching sports—ask me about my favorite football team, I love to talk about them! I read as much as my busy life allows, and I’m happy to take suggestions on any new or interesting books that you recommend.
