About Me

Welcome to my Web page. I am a family practitioner with over 25 years of experience.

Biography

I have been at Kaiser Permanente Riverside Medical Center since 1988 and at Kaiser Permanente Corona Medical Offices since it opened. I am married and have three children, a dog, and a parrot.

About my practice

My practice is limited to adults (over age 16) at this time. This includes women's preventive health care, including osteoporosis, and cervical and breast cancer screenings. My registered nurse provides advice and assistance if you call in by telephone or by e-mail our office through kp.org. I encourage you to register on Kaiser Permanente.org so that you can access your records online. You can then communicate with my office by e-mail, receive updates, order most refill prescriptions, and request routine appointments with ease.

How I thrive

These days I am more often cycling, hiking or kayaking in Newport Beach Back Bay. Nobody is perfect all the time, but we should all strive to live well. Eat healthy and in moderation, don't smoke, get adequate sleep, and try to get some amount of enjoyable exercise daily. Make sure that you come in for your age-specific health care screenings including immunization updates, cancer screening, and screening for hypertension, diabetes and cardiovascular disease. I truly believe that prevention is the best form of medicine.
