How to Use My Home Page...

I feel that it has been a real privilege for me to work for Kaiser Permanente. I work with the best physicians to provide the best quality of care and service for our patients. In addition, Kaiser offers a tremendous amount of help and resources to our members to prevent illness and keep them healthy. I enjoy working with employee groups, and my background has afforded me the opportunity to look at the overall health of employees within an organization, rather than individuals only. My goal is to help folks return to work as soon as they are healthy enough to do so.

I had the first opportunity to experience Kaiser Permanente as I completed my Internal Medicine residency at Kaiser Foundation Hospital here in the city. I started working in Occupational medicine afterwards, and loved it. I really enjoyed treating patients for their work-related injuries and helping them to recover. I had the privilege of being appointed Chief of the Occupational Health Clinic at Kaiser Foundation hospital in Martinez. Since that time, I have continued in this role and have worked with a great team to help develop the additional occupational health clinics in the Diablo service area: Antioch, Walnut Creek, Shadelands, Pleasanton, and Livermore. In addition, I am part of the Health Connect team at the regional level. Health Connect is Kaiserís state-of-the-art electronic charting system.

I have made a personal commitment to staying healthy and thriving. My most favorite activities are running the trails of Mt. Tamalpias and weight training. I enjoy healthy cooking, relaxing with my family, reading, and spending time with good friends. I spend most winter weekends with my family on the Lake Tahoe ski slopes. Summers, I like hiking and camping. Traveling is one of my passions and my most recent trips have been to Europe and Africa.

I would welcome the opportunity to speak with you if I can be of any help to you. Please enjoy your exercise, fresh foods, and relaxation. And please donít forget your sunscreen, bike helmets, and seatbelts. For those who have been struggling with smoking, let us help you take the greatest step you can take for improving your health by smoking cessation. To health, wellness, and thriving!

If you think you have a MEDICAL OR PSYCHIATRIC EMERGENCY, CALL 911 IMMEDIATELY or go to the nearest hospital. DO NOT attempt to access emergency care through this web site. An emergency medical condition is a medical or psychiatric condition that manifests itself by acute symptoms of sufficient severity (including severe pain) such that you could reasonably expect the absence of immediate medical attention to result in any of the following: serious jeopardy to your health, serious impairment to your bodily functions, or serious dysfunction of any bodily organ or part. An emergency medical condition is also "active labor," which means a labor when there is inadequate time for safe transfer to a Plan hospital (or designated hospital) before delivery or if a transfer poses a threat to the health of the member or unborn child.
