I grew up in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. After a tour of duty in the United States Navy, I relocated to Texas, where I completed my residency. I moved to Oregon in 2000 after falling in love with the beauty of the Pacific Northwest. I have two wonderful kids, and we love to explore the outdoors — hiking, camping, and fishing. I feel blessed to work as an obstetrician and gynecologist. I am currently the chief surgical officer for Kaiser Permanente in the mid-valley, the president-elect of the medical staff at Salem Hospital, and a clinical professor at Western University of Health Science.
About my practice
The department of obstetrics and gynecology at Kaiser Permanente is committed to providing the highest quality health care for our members. My practice is oriented toward educating and partnering with my patients to help guide their medical decisions. My staff and I work together to ensure that each aspect of care is of the highest quality. We want to make each and every patient visit exceptional.
How I thrive
I have a wonderful family that provides me with strength and support. I am engaged in teaching and community service activities.
