Acerca de mí
Hello, Welcome to my web page.
I have been Chief of the Department of General Surgery at Kaiser Permanente Baldwin Park Medical Center since 2002. In this role, I oversee a team of caregivers that includes 10 surgeons and a network of physician assistants, wound care specialists, nurses, and other related specialists. In 2014, I was appointed the Regional Chief of General Surgery for Southern California Permanente Medical Group (SCPMG), and in this role I coordinate and oversee the delivery of General Surgical care for more than 9 million Kaiser Permanente members in Southern California. In addition to my roles within SCPMG, I am a Clinical Instructor for the Harbor UCLA Department of Surgery and am a well-respected member of national surgical organizations, including the American College of Surgeons, the Society of Surgical Oncology, and the American Society of Breast Surgeons. In 2008, along with my colleague Dr. Diana Laplace and the East Valley Community Clinic, I began a locally and nationally recognized free Community Surgery Day. Since then, the initiative has provided important surgical care to hundreds of patients in need.
