Kaiser Permanente physician
Idioma que hablo:
Se aceptan pacientes nuevos. Es posible que sea necesaria una remisión.
Welcome to my Web page. I am happy to have this chance to introduce myself and tell you about my practice. I feel very fortunate to work at Kaiser Permanente because of my wonderful colleagues and patients, and I look forward to working with you to care for your health.
I am a Southern California native.
As a primary care sports medicine physician, I specialize in all aspects of medicine as they relate to the athlete, sports, and an active lifestyle. The emphasis of my care is on musculoskeletal and orthopedic injuries. Whether caring for an acute injury or a chronic or overuse injury, a primary care sports medicine physician has the expertise to evaluate the injury and develop a plan of care. Although I have significant knowledge of and experience with surgical treatments, my approach to treatment is primarilty nonsurgical. With an emphasis on rehabilitation modalities and techniques and the use of casting, bracing, or injections as needed, the goal is to return the athlete or active individual to his or her previous level of activity and to know when surgery is necessary to achieve that goal. I work very closely with the orthopedic surgeons, therapists, athletic trainers, and other specialists here to guarantee optimal care.
Keeping balance in my life is very important to me. I volunteer as team physician at California Baptist University and serve as medical director for the Graduate Athletic Training Program. I enjoy the beach, athletics, movies, and hanging out with family and friends.
