I moved to Oregon from the East Coast after graduating from the Albert Einstein College of Medicine in New York City in 2004. I completed my residency in Internal Medicine at Oregon Health & Science University in 2007 and have been working for Kaiser Permanente at the Rockwood Medical Office since then.
I love my job as a primary care physician and enjoy having long-term relationships with my patients and helping them remain healthy throughout their lives. I have an interest in preventive medicine, the management of chronic conditions and assisting patients with behavioral change. I strive to be accessible and easy to talk to. Having this sense of partnership with my patients helps me provide the best possible care for them.
I love living in the Pacific Northwest and have been blessed with a wonderful wife and two children. In my spare time I enjoy spending time with my family, cooking, reading, playing guitar and exercising. I find that keeping physically and creatively active outside of medicine has helped me have greater balance in my life and has helped sustain my enjoyment of practicing medicine.
