I grew up in Southern California and enjoy many outdoors activities such as biking, jogging, and surfing. I have five children, one daughter and four boys. I have been with Kaiser Permanente in Southern California since 2004. I Graduated from Kirksville College of Osteopathic Medicine and love working as a Family Practice Physician.
About my practice
As I have practiced medicine, I have tried to treat each of my patients as I would like to have my family treated. I try to treat the whole patient, not just the disease. Prior to my move to the Northwest, I worked as the Diabetic Champion for the Family Medicine department. I also spent much time doing general medicine and Urgent Care. I have enjoyed working with Kaiser Permanente because of its fully integrated system and because I am able to practice evidence-based medicine without worrying about prior approvals for medical care.
How I thrive
When not at work, I enjoy spending time with my family. My boys love to fish and bike. Prior to moving to Washington, I volunteered as a Scout Master, as well as coaching two of my sons flag football teams.
