Thank you for your interest in my web page!  Every day I go to work, I feel very fortunate. I'm so happy to practice medicine in the Bay Area, be part of Kaiser Permanente, and have such a wonderful group of colleagues. 

I grew up in the East Bay, and ever since leaving this area for college, medical school, and my medical training, I have wanted to return. So in 2010, I moved back to the Bay Area with my wife and two young children. Being a part of Kaiser Permanente is a natural fit for me. Most importantly, it provides a patient-centered and efficient system in which I am enabled and encouraged to provide the best care possible for each individual patient.   

I trained in and have become board certified in both Emergency Medicine and Internal Medicine. I love working in the ER because of the vast variety of patients I encounter, patients of all ages with all types of problems. I enjoy the challenge this presents, and it's fulfilling to be able to offer comfort and support to people at times of crisis. Fortunately, I am also able to practice Internal Medicine at the Oakland Medical Center as a Hospital Based Specialist (known as a hospitalist, taking care of adult patients staying in the hospital). As a hospitalist, I get to delve deeper into the diagnostic and treatment process, and I get to develop closer relationships with my patients and their families. 

Beyond my life as a physician, I am the very proud father of two young children and the husband of an extremely supportive and loving wife. Much of my home life is spent with them, going to the playground or playing with dolls and cars. As a family we love to travel, hike, and have picnics. Individually, I enjoy mountain biking, snow boarding/skiing, photography, backpacking... generally anything outdoors. And, of note, I have traveled and lived in Spanish-speaking countries and thus have become fluent in Spanish. So I very much enjoy opportunities to take care of Spanish-speaking patients.
