About Me

I’m glad to have the opportunity to present my credentials to you and share other information about myself. A visit to the emergency room can be stressful, so it’s very important that you feel comfortable with the physicians there. I hope this page will help you start to get to know me.


I grew up in Texas and attended Stanford University for my undergraduate education. I returned to Texas for medical school at the University of Texas Health Science Center in San Antonio and graduated in 2001. I completed my first two years of emergency medicine residency in Indianapolis before transferring to the Harbor-UCLA Medical Center program for my final year of training and graduation from residency in 2004. I have been working Kaiser Permanente’s South Bay Medical Center since 2005.

About my practice

If you need to come to the emergency room, it’s my goal to provide you with high-quality medical care.

In my free time, I enjoy exercise, good food, good music, and good company.
