Hello, and welcome to my Web page! I hope that you and your loved ones will never need to visit the Emergency Department, but if you do, we are here to care for you in your time of need.
I joined Kaiser Permanente as an associate physician in Emergency Medicine in 2009 after completing my residency at the Cleveland Clinic in Ohio. I earned my bachelor's degree from UC Irvine, and then went to medical school in the Chicago area. I truly believe that my travels have enabled me to be a strong physician. I am originally from Southern California, born and raised in the Downey/Cerritos area. Truly, I am blessed and proud to have the opportunity to serve my community.
Teamwork is key in running a busy Emergency Department such as ours at the Kaiser Permanente Downey Medical Center. This includes providing exceptional care to each and every member, in close coordination with our hospitalists and specialists/surgeons. Our Emergency Department nurses are hardworking and understanding. For me, being a physician is more than a profession, it is my passion. My goal is to provide the best care possible in a timely, efficient, and compassionate manner.
Staying healthy is key. I enjoy going to the gym and hiking. I am devoted to my wife and remain very close with my parents and siblings. When we have the time, we love travelling.
