I have been a partner in the Southern California Permanente Medical Group since 1993, and my office is at the Baldwin Park Medical Center.
I grew up in Chicago, Illinois, completed college and medical school there, and in 1987 moved to Southern California in order to train as a obstetrician/gynecologist, thinking that I would eventually return to Chicago to practice. However, the warm winters and mountain views convinced me to stay in Southern California.
I practice general obstetrics and gynecology. I enjoy the variety of my specialty, spending time in the office and the operating room. In addition, my role as area physician service leader keeps me involved in efforts to maintain our facility's high level of customer service.
Most of my time away from the practice of medicine is spent with my family. My wife and I are active members of our church. Taking time to worship, relax, and reflect on good things has been a healing balm at the end of a busy week. In addition, I enjoy golf, and most types of music, with a preference towards jazz.
