About me
As an anesthesiologist, I strive to provide the best and safest care for my patients, by listening carefully, working hard, and being meticulous with the details.

I practice in all areas of general anesthesiology which includes cases in general surgery, obstetrics and gynecology, ear-nose- throat (ENT), breast, orthopedics, spine, vascular, urology, and ophthalmology. I enjoy the procedural aspects of my profession which involves placing epidurals to assist with pain control during labor and post-surgery, and vascular lines for real- time monitoring in complex cases.

Seattle has been my home for over 20 years, having had all my post-graduate training in the area. In my free time, I enjoy the beautiful outdoors with my family by camping, hiking, and rock climbing.
