What would you like potential patients to know about you?
“Every potential patient should know that their surgical care is my number-one priority. I am available to them and their families from the very first meeting all the way through recovery. There is never a wrong time to call me and, most importantly, there are never too many questions. Additionally, I attend all major medical meetings yearly to stay informed of the latest surgical techniques.”
Who is your professional role model?
“My two uncles were successful and well respected general surgeons in Pasadena and Beverly Hills. Their commitment to their practice and dedication to their patients inspired me.”
What’s most rewarding about your work?
“Most rewarding is a successful surgery and a full recovery for each of my patients, as well as guiding the patient and their family through the surgical process with the least stress and trauma.”

How do you give back to your community?

What do you like to do for fun, when you’re not at work?
“I’m an avid golfer and enjoy reading and photography. My wife and I love a good adventure–we’ve visited over 30 countries around the world. Most recently, we spent a month in Tanzania. I’ve been married for 33 years, we have three grown children and two grandchildren, all of who live in the South Bay.”
