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 feel very fortunate to work at Kaiser Permanente because of my wonderful colleagues and patients, and I look forward to working with you to care for your spine.
I grew up in a small town in western Pennsylvania but even as a child, I wanted to live in a big city. So I traveled to Philadelphia for college, Houston for residency, and New York City for medical school and a fellowship. Then I decided to join Kaiser Permanente in Los Angeles. Fortunately, I saved the most beautiful region of the country for last. My family and I enjoy the beautiful weather and great cultural opportunities that Southern California has to offer.
About my practice
Spinal surgery as a career provides a very special opportunity to help people in a meaningful way. Having a spinal problem can significantly affect quality of life, and it is my privilege to help-to be able to evaluate a patient's condition, formulate a treatment plan, and then communicate the plan, whether surgical or nonsurgical, that will best serve your needs. I feel honored that patients have entrusted me with their care and strive to treat them as I would my own family.
How I thrive
I firmly believe in Kaiser Permanente's emphasis on the health of the whole person and try to live it in my life every day. I try to exercise at least three times a week, either in the gym or on the tennis court. Also, my family life is a major priority. My family and I enjoy exploring California, and participating in various outdoor activities.
