About me

Hello, and welcome to my Web page. I'm very glad that you are visiting. I am a general anesthesiologist, and I am responsible for caring for you and your loved ones when you arrive for perioperative care at Kaiser Permanente.

Biography

I was born and raised in California. I lived in the Bay Area until I became an Anteater at UC Irvine. At UCI, I majored in Biology and was pre-med all the way. There were some ups and downs but in the end I toughed it out and was accepted to New York Medical College in Valhalla, New York. I didn't know how I was going to pay for my education, but the U.S. Government provided an excellent opportunity. I applied for and received a scholarship from the Health Professions Scholarship Program with the U.S. Navy. New York was a great experience but the Navy was where I matured and gained priceless life experiences. From being stationed in sunny San Diego (and tropical Guam) to the severe dry heat in Afghanistan, the Navy has had lasting impressions on me for the rest of my life. I'm very honored to have the opportunity to not only care for my patients but to have also served my country. Now I look forward to the next chapter of my life and that is my family and caring for the population of Orange County through my work at Kaiser Permanente.

About my practice

My practice encompasses anesthesia for a wide variety of cases and clinical settings. This includes perioperative care, which involves caring for patients immediately prior to surgery, during surgery, and after surgery. My responsibilities are to evaluate your medical background and tailor an anesthetic that would be safe and satisfying to you. I also manage your recovery in the post anesthesia care unit (PACU). The PACU staff and I are responsible for your safe recovery from anesthesia. A large part of my practice also involves obstetric anesthesia. My goal is to provide safe and timely anesthesia for the pregnant mother. My number one goal is safety. I look at our role as anesthesiologists as "guardian angels." We watch out for you while the surgeons are performing the surgical procedure.

How I thrive

I like to work hard. I hate to say it but I'm a workaholic. In order for me to do that, I have to keep myself in shape (both physically and mentally). I perform cardio workouts about three to four times a week. I'm on the cardio machine for a little over an hour each time. I feel great after each session. To keep myself focused, I focus on non-medical reading on my off time. Can you say science fiction and Fantasy novels!!!!! I read about a book every one and a half weeks. It's better than watching television! Most of all, what keeps me centered is my family. I can't do what I do without them. Yes, my career is fulfilling but to be able to share it with them is what makes the difference.
