Welcome to my Web page. I am happy to have this chance to introduce myself to you and tell you about my practice. I feel very fortunate to work at Kaiser Permanente because of my wonderful colleagues and our members, and I look forward to working with you to care for your health.
I chose to become a physician specializing in my field because I’ve always had a need to understand the structure and function of the body, how this changes with age or injury, and how we can help ourselves and others with these issues.
I am a physiatrist, caring for people with physically disabling medical problems. Most of the people I see have impairments of the nerves, muscles, and/or joints, with associated pain. I share our busy physical medicine and rehabilitation practice with a small group of dedicated physiatrists. I have enjoyed taking care of Kaiser Permanente members in San Diego since 1989.
I try to maintain a healthy balance in my life of work, play, and rest. I enjoy socializing with friends and family both near and far. I enjoy listening to live music and playing music. Exercising helps me stay balanced, including leisure bicycling, swimming, walking, and yoga-type stretching.
