Welcome to my Web page. I'm glad to have the opportunity to present my credentials to you and share other information about myself. It's very important that you feel comfortable with your personal physician, and I hope this page will help you start to get to know me. I am an anesthesiologist at the Kaiser Permanente San Diego Medical Center.
I was born in Los Angeles but lived throughout the United States as a child, eventually ending up in Texas where I attended undergraduate and medical school. I returned to Los Angeles to complete a pediatrics residency at UCLA, and then completed my anesthesia training at USC. I have an interest in perinatology and pursued this further with a fellowship in obstetric anesthesia combined with additional pediatric anesthesia training at Brigham and Women's Hospital of Harvard Medical School, as well as Boston Children's Hospital. My family lives in Southern California, so I was happy to return here to work at Kaiser Permanente.
Surgery can make members apprehensive. I enjoy the chance to care for them during this time and make the experience better.
My hobbies are my family, playing soccer, and the guitar. I appreciate the emphasis Kaiser Permanente puts on a healthy lifestyle for both their members and physicians.
