I am originally from Chicago. I went to medical school at the University of Illinois at Chicago and decided during that time that my passion was taking care of people throughout their whole lives. I was naturally drawn to family medicine as my specialty and completed my training in Chicago before moving to Denver. There I worked with Kaiser Permanente for nearly three years before coming to Portland with my wife. I am excited to be here and also to continue my work with Kaiser Permanente!
About my practice
As a family physician I enjoy taking care of all patients from infancy through their golden years. I strongly believe in the importance of preventive medicine. I am passionate about caring for the adolescent population and feel that developing good health habits at a young age is extremely important. I also have an interest in sports medicine.
How I thrive
During my time off, my wife and I enjoy exploring the city, trying new restaurants, visiting wineries and breweries, and spending time with our family. We also appreciate the outdoors and lead an active lifestyle, hiking and spending time in nature.
