I was born and raised in New York and have slowly migrated cross the country training and practicing medicine in a variety of locations, from Illinois to New Mexico and then here to Oregon where my wife and I finally felt at home and put down roots in 1998. I spent about fifteen years in academic medicine before joining Kaiser Permanente in 2006.
About my practice
My practice is the care of musculoskeletal problems in children. From neck to toes, our staff works as a team to try and help navigate our patients through acute injuries or long-term disabilities. We treat conditions from birth to teen years such as scoliosis, hip dysplasia, clubfeet, fractures, muscle and bone infections, and many more.
How I thrive
I consider myself lucky to have this career and work for Kaiser Permanente. I take time outside of work for writing, biking, and snowboarding with my kids. For the last twenty years, I have spent about two weeks a year in South America performing surgery in towns and pueblos where kids would otherwise go untreated. Giving back some of the things we've been given is a gift in itself.
