About Me

Thank you for taking the time to visit my Web page. I believe that every patient should be comfortable with their choice of physician.


I am originally from Chicago and moved to California for medical school and surgical training. I have found that this area offers many things that I like, such as the mountains and the ocean. There is always something to do here.

About my practice

I have a combined practice of thoracic and general surgery. I find the variety to be the very enjoyable. My main focus, however, is minimally invasive lung and esophageal surgery.

How I thrive

I try to make time to reflect on things and to keep things in perspective. I enjoy going on long walks and whenever possible, to spend time by the ocean.
