Hi, my nickname is Chris. I'm glad to have the opportunity to present my credentials to you and share other information about myself.
I was born in Los Angeles and grew up in Southern California until going to college in Baltimore. After college, I attended medical school in Chicago and returned to Los Angeles for my internship and residency in emergency medicine at Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical Center. After residency, I began practicing at Kaiser Permanente Baldwin Park Medical Center in 2012.
Medicine as a career is a very special opportunity to connect and help people in a meaningful way, utilizing medical skills and knowledge but also listening and responding to what members need. Being a doctor 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, get them the appropriate evaluations, and 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 enjoy working out regularly and spending time with my family. I am an avid sports fan as well, rooting for the Dodgers, Raiders, Lakers, and Kings.
