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