Thank you for taking the time to visit my Web page. You have made an excellent decision in choosing Kaiser Permanente as your health care provider, and I would be honored if given the opportunity to deliver anesthesia for your surgical procedure.
I was born in San Francisco and raised in Vallejo, California. My journey to become a physician started when I was in high school, as a volunteer at a local hospital. My interest in medicine has changed over the years, but my passion has always been the same: to provide the best possible care for my patients. I attended medical school in New York and completed my residency training in New Jersey, but I am happy to be back in sunny Southern California.
I am a general anesthesiologist, and my practice is based mainly at San Diego Medical Center. I am privileged to work with many physicians and nurse anesthetists to deliver anesthesia in a team approach. Our department embodies the philosophy of team health care. We pride ourselves in informing you about your care, easing anxiety before your surgery, delivering the best possible anesthesia, and ensuring comfort and safety after your surgery.
I like to stay active by playing sports: tennis, snowboarding, biking, and swimming. I also enjoy watching sports as well. Most of all, I enjoy spending time with my family.
