Overview

Welcome to My Home Page! About Me I grew up in Southern California, and went to undergraduate school there at the University of California, Irvine. I studied biological sciences and had my mind set to pursue a career in medicine. I loved the physiology and the science and was fascinated with how the human body works. Even when I was in high school, I knew that I wanted to become a doctor for that reason. In particular, I knew that I always wanted to become a surgeon. I enjoy working with my hands and thus choosing a career in surgery was very natural for me. I then went onto medical school at Temple University School of Medicine, in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. The East Coast was very different from California, and I was thrilled when I got accepted to get my surgical training/residency at the University of California, San Francisco-East Bay Program. I was very happy to be back in California, as I have all my family here. After my surgical residency, I chose to work at a Kaiser Permanente facility and am now at Walnut Creek. I not only love the location, but I also love the people who work here. They are very professional and have excellent camaraderie. Also, working at Kaiser Permanente allows me to focus on taking care of patients and I don’t have to worry about the business aspect of medicine. After about 2 years of working at Kaiser Permanente Walnut Creek as a general surgeon, I developed a strong interest in hepatobiliary surgery. Therefore, I went onto University of Southern California and completed a fellowship in surgery of the liver and pancreas. I am very excited to be back with all my colleagues here at Walnut Creek!
