Hello, and welcome to my Web page. I am glad to have the opportunity to present my credentials to you and share other information about myself. It's very important that you feel comfortable with your personal physician, and I hope this page will help you start to get to know me.
I'm from Alabama where my family still lives. After receiving my medical education from the University of Alabama, I completed my residency through UC San Francisco at San Francisco General Hospital.
Medicine as a career creates a very special opportunity to connect and help people in a meaningful way. I do this by not only utilizing my medical skills and knowledge, but also listening and responding to what members need. It is a privilege to help members understand what concerns them, translate what they may not grasp, facilitate getting them the appropriate evaluations, and communicate with them and their families. I feel very honored that members have entrusted me with their care and I always strive to treat them as I would my own family.
I firmly believe in Kaiser Permanente's philosophy of total health, which includes health of body, mind, and spirit, and I try to live it in my life every day. My wife and children are the center of my life. I also enjoy pretending to know how to play golf.
