About Me

I’m glad to have this opportunity to present my credentials to you and share other information about myself. It’s very important that you feel comfortable with your physician, and I hope this page will help you start to get to know me.


I grew up in Woodland Hills, where generations of my family have been Kaiser Permanente members. I love children and pediatrics was the only medical specialty I considered. I also love to travel, and it was through my travels that I met my beautiful Swedish wife, who is a dermatologist. Our daughter is a good mother of two beautiful girls and is a nurse practitioner in women’s health in Seattle. Our son graduated from UC Berkeley in bioengineering and just graduated with an MBA from the Wharton School at the University of Pennsylvania. He is now a founder and CEO of his own company.

About my practice

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 sick. I want to be your partner in health, and it helps me better care for you when you are taking good care of yourself. Please be assured that I will do my best to care for your children just as I would care for my own grandchildren.

How I thrive

I practice what I preach! I am an avid runner and swimmer and fitness enthusiast. My wife and I are also enthusiastic world travelers. We just returned from a trip to Patagonia and Cape Horn.
