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 privileged to work at Kaiser Permanente. I work with my wonderful colleagues and members, and look forward to working with you to care for your health.
I moved from Florida to Ventura to practice orthopedic surgery, fell in love with the wonderful weather and made Southern California my home for good.
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 patients need. Being a doctor allows people to share with me their fears and hopes; it is a privilege to help patients understand what concerns them, translate what they may not grasp, facilitate getting them the appropriate evaluations, and communicate with them and their families. I feel very honored that patients have entrusted me with their care and strive to treat them as I would my own family.
Keeping balance in my life is very important to me. I also make it a priority to set aside time to just relax, exercise or golf with my friends.
