Welcome to my Web page. I’m happy to have this chance to introduce myself to you and tell you about my practice. I feel lucky to work at Kaiser Permanente with my great colleagues and wonderful members, and look forward to working with you to care for your health.
I was born in Oregon and spent most of my youth there. I went to college at UC Berkeley and attended medical school at UC San Diego. I have lived in San Diego since 1984. I completed a residency in internal medicine at Mercy Hospital and Medical Center. I love living in San Diego for the countless outdoor activities it offers.
I feel that healthy living—with a focus on exercise and avoiding tobacco—and preventive care, are the best ways to stay healthy. I want to be your partner in health, and it helps me better care for you when you are actively involved in your care.
My hobbies outside of medicine include rock climbing and cooking—and, of course, the eating that follows the cooking!
