Welcome to my Web page. I'm happy to have this chance to introduce myself to you and tell you about my practice. I feel very fortunate to work at Kaiser Permanente because of my wonderful colleagues and our members, and I look forward to working with you to care for your health. I started working with the Southern California Permanente Medical Group in 2009.
I was born in a beautiful city in the northwestern part of Iran (Urmia), which has a beautiful lake, rivers, farms, and mountains. After high school, medical school, a urology residency program, and then working as a urologist for many years, I decided to come to the United States to join my family. In America, I finished my residency in family medicine. I am married and I have a son in college.
Currently I am a full-time urgent care provider. Medicine as a career is a very special opportunity to connect with and help people in a meaningful way, utilizing medical skills and knowledge, but also listening and responding to what members need. Being a physician allows people to share with me their innermost secrets, fears, and hopes. It is a privilege to help members understand what concerns them, translate what they may not grasp, facilitate getting them the appropriate evaluations, and to communicate with them and their families. I feel very honored that members have entrusted me with their care and strive to treat them as I would my own family.
I firmly believe in Kaiser Permanente's philosophy of health in mind, body, and spirit and try to live it in my life every day. My family life is my major priority. I try to remain active. My wife, son, and I enjoy summer camping trips, hiking, biking, and quiet family time at home.
