About Me

Welcome to my Web page! I hope the information provided here allows you to learn about my pediatric practice and about me.


I was born and raised in Orange County and attended UC Irvine for my undergraduate studies. I attended medical school at Wake Forest University in North Carolina, and then returned to Southern California to perform my pediatric residency training at UCLA. I decided, even before medical school, that I wanted to become a pediatrician. Family has always been the most important thing in my life, and as a pediatrician, I have the honor of caring for a family's most prized members: the kids! As a father myself, I strive to be the kind of physician I would want caring for my own children.

About my practice

I am fortunate to have joined a tremendous family of pediatricians and staff at the Kaiser Permanente La Palma Medical Offices. Everybody works as a team to do their best to provide high-quality and efficient care. Preventive healthcare is my primary objective, and I'm a strong advocate for immunizations.

How I thrive

I always spend as much time as possible with my wife, children, family, and friends. I enjoy mountain biking and cooking slow-smoked backyard BBQ (in moderation). I'm also a sports fan who bleeds purple and gold.
