About Reviews

No comments available. ?

I am originally from Ohio and decided early on that I wanted to pursue medicine, after growing up in a household of chemical engineers. I matriculated into a combined undergraduate and medical school program at Case Western Reserve University in Cleveland, Ohio. Along the way, I received top honors in biology and international studies, while also spending two years in Japan and meeting my wife there. After medical school, I trained in anesthesiology at Stanford University and am delighted to relocate to the Pacific Northwest, which has always been a place I've wanted to live since childhood.

About my practice

I am devoted to providing the best care possible for my patients and their families, and to do so with a smile in a friendly, respectful, and approachable manner. I take pride in alleviating stress and anxiety before surgery through careful listening and consideration of each of my patient's specific concerns. During residency, I actively sought out the most complex cases so that I would be prepared to deliver the safest anesthetics possible, no matter the circumstances. I value the multitude of resources available to me as a physician at Kaiser Permanente; it makes it that much easier for me to provide no-compromise, quality care for all of my patients and their loved ones.

How I thrive

I have always advocated a balance between work and personal life, though I am so glad that I enjoy my work as much as I do. When not at work, I love spending time with my wife, daughter, and infant son. Despite the challenges of raising small kids, they are a source of joy for me daily. I love the art of cooking and am often in the kitchen in my free time. I am proficient in classical piano, practiced longbow archery while living in Japan, and enjoy playing tennis and table tennis. I am always on the lookout for new hobbies, as I thrive best when I am expanding both my personal and professional interests.
