About Me

Having grown up in the Bay Area it is an honor and privilege to contribute to the health and wellbeing of our community.

My path to Otolaryngology – Head and Neck Surgery was driven by the intimacy of our senses on quality of life; the sense of smell, taste, touch, site, and hearing are all encompassed within the head and neck.

During my training at UCLA, I was fascinated by the personal satisfaction and empowerment that patients experience following cosmetic and reconstructive facial surgery. For these reasons, I decided to pursue advanced fellowship training in Facial Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery at UCSF with Drs. Daniel Knott and Rahul Seth.

My clinical interests span the breadth of Otolaryngology including reconstructive cutaneous and maxillofacial surgery, rhinoplasty, and facial aesthetic surgery. I am very fortunate to be a part of two Kaiser Permanente families (South San Francisco and San Francisco) and am proud of the outstanding longitudinal, sub-specialty, and patient-centered care delivered by KP.

While not working, I enjoy cycling, rowing, and being outdoors.
