After finishing my residency training at the University of Southern California, I joined a private practice group in Eugene, Oregon. Shorty after, I had the opportunity to join Kaiser Permanente. I quickly grew to value and embrace the Kaiser Permanente healthcare model. As a physician, I believe it is the model for healthcare in America. As a patient, I know that my family and I are receiving the best comprehensive care that is available.
As an anesthesiologist, I believe my role is to be a patient advocate and consultant to the surgeon. My job is to keep patients comfortable and safe.
Total mind, body, and health are of paramount importance to me. I try to spend as much time as I can with my wife and two daughters. I keep in shape by doing Crossfit because I feel it gives me a balance of strength, endurance, and agility. However, my wife and I love Portland dining, which can be irresistable.
