About Me

I am a pulmonologist at Kaiser Permanente Chester Avenue Medical Office in Bakersfield. I appreciate your viewing my Web page and hope you will find useful information here regarding my specialty and credentials, as well as a little bit about me as a person.


My wife and I both chose to practice medicine with Kaiser Permanente in Kern County. In addition to sharing a passion for treating people, we also share a love for each other and our young daughter.

About my practice

I am a board-certified internist, pulmonologist, and intensivist with special expertise in pulmonary and critical care, and sleep medicine. I strongly believe that members with lung disease and critically ill members require an attentive and caring physician. My philosophy for medical practice is to treat each member as the most important one. Discussing health management options with the member and their family, and choosing the right option for the individual member, are very important to me.

How I thrive

For me, there's nothing like a good round of golf, a dive in the pool, or a walk around my neighborhood.
