Kaiser Permanente physician
My gender: Male
Accepting new patients.
Hi, and welcome to my Web page. I would like to take this opportunity to introduce myself, and share a bit about my practice.
After finishing medical school, I did residencies in internal medicine and family medicine. I am board-certified in family medicine, and have practiced for 21 years. I treat members of all ages, and often multiple generations of a single family. It is very important that you feel comfortable with your personal physician, and I hope this page will help you get to know me.
I chose medicine as a career because patient care is a very special opportunity to connect and help people in a meaningful way. I utilize medical knowledge as well as listening skills to understand what patients need. I feel very honored that my patients entrust me with their care, and treat them as I would treat my own family. I believe my role in the patient-physician relationship is to educate patients and their families about their health, explain treatment options, translate what they may not grasp, and facilitate getting them the appropriate evaluations.
Maintaining a balanced life is very important to me. I am passionate about my work, but I also enjoy gardening, and I am an excellent swimmer. I keep fit and healthy in order to be at my best for my patients.
