Welcome to my Web page. I’m 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 because of my wonderful colleagues and patients, and I look forward to working with you to care for your health.
I was born in Tehran, Iran, and moved to Orange County at age 9. I grew up in Southern California and currently reside in Orange County. My hobbies include fishing, kayaking, all sports, music, and writing. I am happily married and have two great pomeranian puppies.
I'm a board-certified general surgeon with a specific interest in minimally invasive surgery; I completed a fellowship in advanced laparoscopy after completion of my residency. The scope of my practice includes treating conditions ranging from inguinal hernias, breast cancer, and gallbladder disease to all conditions requiring advanced laparoscopic operations.
My philosophy of life is to maintain balance, meaning a good family and social life, a productive and gratifying job, and exercise.
