I was born and raised Los Angeles, California and migrated south to University of California, San Diego for my undergraduate studies. My desire to pursue medicine brought me to the Pacific Northwest in 1998 where I attended Oregon Health & Science University. I met my wife in Oregon, and our four children keep us busy with the joys and trials of parenthood.
My practice as a Perinatologist allows me to care for high risk pregnancies and their complications. While a large portion of my job involves the difficulties of pregnancy, I take pride in helping families understand and overcome their particular situations. I enjoy nothing more than continuing care for these families in subsequent pregnancies and circumstances.
I fully believe in the "work-life balance" that Kaiser Permanente offers. While I get to practice medicine and help families, I also enjoy time off with my family and friends.
