About Me

Welcome to my Web page. I'm glad to have the opportunity to present my credentials to you and share other information about myself. It is important that you feel comfortable with your personal physician, and I hope this page will help you start to get to know me.


I moved from Iowa to California to attend school, and fell in love with the sunny weather. California has been my home since 1984, and I moved to Los Angeles in 1994. I come from a large family (I am the oldest of seven siblings), and my parents taught me the importance of helping others.

About my practice

My areas of expertise include thyroid disease including thyroid cancer and goiter in the adult and pediatric population, pediatric and adult neck and parotid surgery, sinus disease and endoscopic sinus surgery, and airway and tracheal disease including tracheal stenosis and vocal cord disorders.

How I thrive

Keeping balance in my life is very important to me. I enjoy hiking with my dogs in the mountains around Los Angeles. I also make it a priority to set aside time to relax and travel with my family.
