Welcome to My Doctor Online, a web site that my colleagues and I developed to make it easier for you to take care of your healthcare needs. On this site you will find answers to many of your questions about my clinical practice. Also included are several online features that will allow you to e-mail me, check your laboratory results and refill prescriptions. I hope you find its content informative and useful. I didn't travel far to attend the University of California, Los Angeles. Four years there brought me a degree in Biology with a minor in mathematics. For the next two years I attended graduate school in the department of Biomathematics at UCLA while working in aerospace. Medicine however became my goal. Once again, UCLA was my home while I attended medical school. I spent the next year as a Surgery Intern at the University of California, San Diego. The following year was a Fellowship in Critical Care Medicine at Harbor/UCLA Medical Center, and once again I was close to the beaches of Los Angeles. The following 5 years were spent in a General Surgery Residency at the same hospital. Following this was a year of fellowship in Trauma and Critical Care Medicine in Long Beach (very near the beach!). The last year of formal training was spent in Portland, Oregon for yet another fellowship in Trauma. I originally came to Santa Rosa expecting to fill a need for a trauma surgeon at what was then Community Hospital. What was to be a 6 week contract was ultimately extended to 2 years. Thereafter, I had a private practice centered in Sebastopol. Kaiser Permanente had an opening for a Surgeon in 1996 and I was fortunate enough to secure that position. As a Kaiser Permanente surgeon, my skills and procedures have continued to evolve and adapt to change. New procedures in breast cancer and laparoscopy have required a commitment to continuous learning and education.
