Welcome to my Web page! I'm one of the Emergency Department physicians at Kaiser Permanente Downey Medical Center. I may have had the honor of taking care of you during a recent visit. If so, I hope that the care you received exceeded your expectations and that you’re feeling much better!
I’ve lived in various parts of the country—including Alaska, Louisiana, Florida, Illinois, and Washington, DC. I can definitely say that the weather and beaches of Southern California provide exactly the environment I want now. The members at Downey Medical Center are a pleasure to serve. For me, one of the best things about being a physician is that I get to ease suffering every day.
The Emergency Department can be a stressful place for people to visit. We see a large number of members each day. Our goal is to get members into a room and treated as quickly as possible. We are constantly improving our protocols to better serve our members.
I’m an avid runner! My dog and I stay fit and happy by running on trails. I also enjoy Bikram yoga, traveling, and anything that gets me outdoors. Sleep is another key part of my health philosophy. I like to eat low-fat, locally grown, fresh food, and I avoid fast food completely.
