Kaiser Permanente physician
My gender: Male
Accepting new patients. Referral may be required.
I believe doctors and patients are partners in a health care team, and it's important for all patients to know a little bit about their doctors' backgrounds, credentials, experiences, and interests. I am glad to have this opportunity to tell you a little bit about myself.
I grew up in Southern California and attended high school in Huntington Beach. As a child, I always had interest in math and physics. I pursued a career in engineering and graduated from UC Berkeley with a bachelor’s degree in electrical engineering and computer science. After working in the field for a short time in San Jose, I missed daily interactions with different people and found a new interest in the eye and visual system. I decided to go back to school and received my doctor of optometry degree from the Southern California College of Optometry. My wife and I are blessed with 3 children.
I had worked in private optometry and ophthalmology practices. I joined Kaiser Permanente in Los Angeles in 1998, and transferred to Orange County in 2003. I enjoy the multidisciplinary health care team and advanced technology here at Kaiser Permanente. It's a great place to provide comprehensive care to our members, and it's satisfying for me to have this opportunity to take care of members’ eye health and visual needs.
On my off days, I like to spend time with my wife and kids at the beach or park. Also, I enjoy meeting up with colleagues and friends for a round of golf. It's very relaxing and therapeutic for me mentally and physically to walk the golf course.
