About Me

Welcome to my Web page. I feel very fortunate to work at Kaiser Permanente because of my excellent colleagues, and look forward to working with you to care for your health.


I have been a Kaiser Permanente physician for 22 years, and I’ve lived in San Diego County/Southern California for most of past 40 years. I am a UCLA School of Medicine graduate, father of four, and stepfather of three,

About my practice

I practice hospital-based emergency medicine. I believe healthy living and preventive care are the best ways to stay healthy, but I am here to help you when you are suddenly sick or injured. I want to be your partner in health and safety, and encourage you to be actively involved in taking care of your health.

How I thrive

Frequent physical activity including regular fitness training, beach walks with the dogs, hiking, mountain biking, skiing keep me balanced.
