Raised in Southern California, I attended medical school in Loma Linda, followed by professional training in Chicago, Illinois and Portland, Oregon.
I count it a privilege to take part in each patient's care. As an interventional radiologist, I serve as a specialized consultant, often with a very direct goal in mind. This can involve obtaining a tissue biopsy, treating tumors with targeted chemotherapy, opening up clogged arteries, or stopping life-threatening bleeding. All this is done using minimally invasive, image-guided techniques. I strive to keep you and your family informed and educated during your care, hopefully leading to the most efficient and effective healthy outcome.
I make time weekly to spend with family and friends. Although this often revolves around food (a farmer's market, local eatery, or church activity), it also extends to outdoor walks at a state park or bicycling along the Willamette River. I enjoy traveling, including one previous medical mission trip providing radiology education in Cameroon, Africa.
