Welcome to my Web page! I am a board-certified general surgeon with added certification in critical care. I truly enjoy my job.
I’ve lived in many places, but have been in Southern California longer than anywhere else. I went to medical school and completed my surgery residency at Loma Linda University. I joined Kaiser Permanente in Fontana in 1988, and have been here ever since.
I perform a broad spectrum of general surgery, but spend the majority of time doing thyroid and parathyroid surgery, as well as pancreatic and biliary surgery.
I’ve been fortunate to be very healthy—and hope to remain that way! I primarily attribute my health to diet and exercise. I’ve been a vegetarian since birth, and I enjoy distance running. I’m a hiker, a farmer, and a birdwatcher.
