Overview

There are many reasons why I became a physician and continue to enjoy this wonderful profession. Most important is the ability to bring good health to those I have the opportunity to care for. I come from a family of physicians, who had great influence on my decision to become a doctor, but the challenges of medicine and interactions with patients and colleagues are so fulfilling. My specialty of infectious diseases is especially exciting, as it puts me in the position of medical detective. Hunting an infectious disease requires a broad knowledge of medicine while at the same time being mindful of the details of a person's daily life and experiences that may contribute to illness as well as to good health. At Kaiser Permanente, the opportunity to interact and consult easily and effectively with physicians of all specialties helps me provide the best possible care. Kaiser Permanente’s dedication to disease prevention, and to education of physicians and patients, makes this a unique and exciting place to practice. This dedication ties into my philosophy of healing, which is reflected in the oath taken upon becoming a physician: that I should care for others as I would have them care for me. My interests, though, do reach beyond medicine. I enjoy spending time with my wife and our two sons, especially looking for historic train rides around our area. I am also a big sports fan, both participating and cheering, most ardently in basketball and tennis.
