I was born in a Kaiser Permanente hospital, and after my training, I decided I wanted to work in a Kaiser Permanente Medical Center.
I completed my surgical residency in Worcester, Massachusetts and the Harvard Critical Care Research Fellowship in Boston. I’m a fellow in the American Society of Metabolic and Bariatric Surgeons, a fellow of the American College of Surgeons and a member of the International Federation for the Surgery of Obesity, and a member of the Society of American Gastrointestinal and Endoscopic Surgeons.
I joined Kaiser Permanente in 2003.
I’m the medical officer for the Caring Angel Foundation, which has regular missions to the Philippines to offer surgical treatment and medical education. These are a source of great pride, as we provide care for those who can’t afford treatment for their breast cancer, gallstones or hernias. My wife is a breast cancer survivor and I strongly recommend that my patients stay current on their preventive services. My outside interests include walking my dog, hiking, camping, scuba diving, and gardening.
