Overview

Welcome to My Doctor Online, a website Kaiser Permanente physicians developed to help you address healthcare needs simply. I am a family physician trained in the care of babies, children, adults and office gynecology. From this site, check your preventive health needs, reorder medication online or act for a family member. Learn about conditions, online programs and improve your fitness and health, in mind and body. Background Thank you for taking the time to learn a little more about me. As a family physician with Kaiser Permanente, I truly believe I need to serve as a patient advocate and to be my patients' spokesperson and connection to the wealth of services and specialist that are available from our very large organization. By learning more about me and my philosophy, we can better function as a team, working to keep you healthy and enjoying life; or, in essence, "thrive"! I joined Kaiser Permanente in the summer of 2002 after 8 years of private practice in the town of Sonoma. It was very difficult to make that change, saying goodbye to the many families I had the pleasure to care for, but my family and I are much happier and life is much more stable in the Kaiser framework. My wife has been an Emergency Physician with Kaiser Permanente since our move to California in 1994, so you can imagine the multiple discussions on the future of medicine and private practice during the years up to my switch. I honestly admit that I did not enjoy running a small business. It may be a cliche, but at Kaiser Permanente I really can focus on matters that deal directly with taking care of people which is where I am at my best. The most rewarding part of my job is taking care of whole families and learning the dynamics of the family and how it impacts our health. Preventive medicine and helping motivate folks to make the changes necessary to ensure health is the most challenging yet fascinating facet of being a family doctor. I believe people ALWAYS have the right to accept or refuse my suggestions; it is their body and they must choose. I must pass on the information as it has been given to me while guiding my patients on where to place their priorities and energies regarding their health. Every individual is different and the wonderful thing about Family Medicine and primary care is that we get to see the "big picture." I was born in Philadelphia, and raised in Southern New Jersey. I went to college at the U.S. Merchant Marine Academy in Kings Point, N.Y. because I am the youngest of five kids and it was the only full scholarship I received. I majored in Marine Engineering which is similar to Mechanical and at the time was one of only two choices. My Mom and oldest sister are both nurses and they were my first exposures to medicine. I decided on applying to medical school toward the end of my undergraduate studies but had an obligation to maritime service after graduating. I was one of the fortunate few to get a job on a ship when I finished and sailed a total of 24 months over the next four years. I will be glad to share a sea story or two someday in the office. I graduated from medical school back in Philadelphia in 1990 and felt fortunate that during that time I only had two cars stolen. A small donation to the City of Brotherly Love. I also met my lovely wife at that time, who is originally from California, and the rest is history. I look forward to meeting you in the office some day, if we have not met already. Navigating my site will give you more information on understanding Allopathic vs. Osteopathic Medicine via the AOA link. I strongly urge you to visit the Health Encyclopedia, the CAM link for alternative options, and the Healthwise Handbook for they are EXCELLENT resources and, unlike everything on the Web, this information has been reviewed by Kaiser Permanente providers.
