About Reviews

No comments available. ?

I was born and raised in the Midwest. As a young man, I spent four years programming computers for the United States Air Force. I realized I preferred working with people rather than machines so I went to college and earned a bachelor's degree in physical therapy, which further motivated me to go to medical school and finish a master's degree in public health. I still like traveling and have practiced medicine in diverse settings such as rural Appalachia, Native American reservations, inner-city indigent clinics, and participated in medical mission projects in Southeast Asia, Africa, and Latin America. I have a wonderful wife and the most amazing son I could hope for.

About my practice

I work in Kaiser Permanente's Urgent Care Department where I enjoy the companionship of some of the most competent, caring, and dedicated professionals with which I have ever had the honor of working. I love my job and enjoy interacting with the diverse patients who come to our clinic. I believe in building a partnership with my patients and try to provide the quality of care that I would expect for myself or my own family.

How I thrive

I enjoy swimming, hiking, camping, kayaking, and just about anything that can be done outdoors. When I cannot be outside, I enjoy writing, drawing, and classical guitar. My wife and son provide me with inspiration, motivation, and joy. I am a very lucky man, and I do not take my blessings for granted.
