Overview

I chose to become a physician to have the opportunity to improve other people's lives on a daily basis. I grew up in Texas where I completed college and medical school. I then moved to Los Angeles to obtain my head and neck surgery residency training at USC, where I met my wife. Following residency, we spent a year in Syracuse, New York where I completed a fellowship in facial plastic and reconstructive surgery. It was great to experience the snow for a year, but we missed sunny Southern California! So we moved back to Los Angeles where I joined the faculty of the USC School of Medicine. Over time, I realized that the many responsibilities of academic practice did not allow me to concentrate on providing optimal patient care, the reason I chose medicine as a career in the first place. I then discovered Kaiser Permanente, and am now able to focus primarily on patient care.
