About Me

Welcome to my Web page. I am 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. I always strive to provide the highest quality care to each and every patient. My goal is do what is best for my patients.


I grew up in Baltimore and came to California for medical school and my residency. I took a position at Loma Linda University and joined Kaiser Permanente in 1998. I have enjoyed striving to give the highest-quality care to our patients here at Kaiser Permanente Orchard Medical Offices.

About my practice

My areas of surgical specialty are general head and neck surgery, thyroid/parathyroid surgery, reconstructive facial surgery for skin cancer patients, and sinus surgery. I am able to give my patients the highest possible care and am honored that my patients entrust their health care to me.

How I thrive

I stay well by pursuing activities such as tennis, running, golf, swimming, cycling, and other sports. I keep my mind and spirit well by reflecting on the fact we are guided by a higher being, reading, teaching, listening to music, and of course enjoying time with my family.
