About Me

I am from the Chicago area. My father was a family physician who encouraged me to follow in his footsteps. I am happily married to my college sweetheart and we have three adult daughters who all work in medical related fields, one physician, one occupational therapist and one nurse.

About my practice

I am a Board certified Otolaryngologist- Head and Neck Surgeon. I also completely a one year fellowship in Facial Plastic Surgery as well as a shorter fellowship in Head and Neck Surgery. I have had a rewarding career at Kaiser Permanente practicing much of the surgical breadth of my specialty. I am now focusing more on the facial plastic aspect of the specialty, such as surgery for skin cancer defects, surgical treatment of nasal disorders and cosmetic surgery of the head and neck. I am available at the cosmetic center as well as the ENT office.

How I thrive

I thrive through learning, exercising and spending time with my family and friends.
