About Me

Welcome to my page. I am proud to be a member of your health care team at Kaiser Permanente.


I grew up and went to school in New York but gradually found my way westward. I first stopped in Indianapolis and served in the United States Public Health Service as a pediatrician in a medically underserved area, then moved on to Denver for training in allergy and clinical immunology. I finally landed in Southern California in 1978 to practice in the Allergy Department with Kaiser Permanente.

About my practice

The Allergy Department evaluates and treats patients with asthma, nasal allergies, eczema, hives and recurrent infections as a team of doctors and nurses. We believe in educating our members so they can take responsibility for the self-management of their problems following nationally recognized guidelines.

How I thrive

I believe in, and practice eating healthy foods in moderation and daily exercise. I find that music is the best way for me to relax and regenerate my spirit.
