Hello, and welcome to my Web page. I'm happy to have this chance to introduce myself to you and tell you about my work as a physician at Kaiser Permanente. I am an orthopedic surgeon and specialize in the treatment of conditions of the hand, elbow, and shoulder. I feel fortunate to be able to work at Kaiser Permanente, and I look forward to working with you to take care of your health.
I grew up in the San Fernando Valley. I attended college UCLA (Go Bruins!). Then I moved to Sacramento for medical school at UC Davis (Go Aggies!). My orthopedic surgery residency took me to the University of Arizona in Tucson (Go Wildcats!) I completed my training in Gainesville, FL, with a fellowship in Hand and Upper Extremity Surgery at the University of Florida (Go Gators!).
I feel that healthy living and preventive care are the best ways to stay healthy, but I'm also here to help you when you are not feeling your best. I want to be your partner in health, and it helps me better care for you when you are actively involved in taking care of your health. I will present you with surgical and non-surgical treatment options. I will give my recommendations, but I ultimately allow you to make your medical decisions with autonomy.
Keeping balance in my life is very important to me. I enjoy being active working out, running, swimming, and basketball. I also make it a priority to set aside time to just relax.
