About Me

Hello and welcome to my Web page. It’s my pleasure to introduce myself and our Department of Otolaryngology (head and neck surgery) commonly referred to as the ear, nose, and throat specialty.


I’m a native of Southern California and, after attending medical school on the East Coast, I returned to California for my specialty training in general surgery and otolaryngology. I enjoyed a busy private practice in Hawaii before moving back home to the South Bay and joining Kaiser Permanente in 1996.

About my practice

The pride of my practice is taking care of children and adults in all aspects of illness and injury concerning the head and neck and related structures. Compassionate care based on evidence is a standard for my practice and our team. Within the Kaiser Permanente South Bay Medical Center we are well suited to deliver high-quality care to our members.

How I thrive

It’s important to be well grounded and balanced in one's life. I find my balance by spending quality time with family and friends, exercising regularly, and enjoying a life of learning.
