Welcome to My Home Page! About Me I attended the University of California at Davis. I thought I might make a bigger difference becoming a doctor than becoming a winemaker. I wanted to make people feel better beyond a good glass of wine, so I'm practicing in the ultimate "feel good" specialty: anesthesiology. I joined the medical group in 1990 right out of residency because I really like the Bay Area and I was very impressed with the physicians I interviewed with. Obviously, I'm still impressed with the quality and congeniality of my fellow colleagues. I can not imagine working in another environment. The operating room is definitely an intense and challenging place. I really enjoy practicing anesthesiology there. I'm never bored. Nevertheless, I know it's important to have a balanced life. As a Kaiser Permanente physician, I can have a life outside of medicine. I travel extensively, read voraciously, and keep physically fit and active. I have season tickets to the symphony, the University of Arizona men's basketball games, and professional indoor lacrosse. I'm a member of the American Society of Anesthesiologists, the California Society of Anesthesiologists, and the Internal Anesthesia Research Society. I occasionally lecture on anesthesiology in the hospital and run the department's quarterly journal club.

Data Transparency and Trust: Understanding WebMD Doctor Listings and Reviews

We know that finding the right doctor or provider is important to your health. That’s why we want to ensure you have confidence in the provider profiles and listings you see on WebMD Care. Our provider data is sourced from the physicians themselves as well as publicly available databases. Any doctor or provider who claims their profile by verifying themselves can update their information and provide additional data on their specialties, education, accepted insurances, conditions they treat, and procedures they perform.

All the physician and provider reviews on WebMD Care are provided by users just like you. Knowing these reviews provide insight into how other patients feel about a doctor, we maintain internal policies and protocols to ensure the quality and accuracy of all reviews. Providers are not able to remove or modify reviews on their own. Reviews can only be removed after an internal review by our customer service team.

We value your input and encourage you to reach out to our support team if you encounter any issues.
