About

Bio

I am an interventional radiologist practicing at Kaiser Permanente Napa-Solano. My primary interest is interventional oncology, using catheter and ablation skills to treat liver, kidney, and lung tumors. I am also trained in diagnostic radiology, interpreting x-rays, ultrasounds, CTs, and MRIs. In my free time, I enjoy gardening, dining out with my wife, and bringing my dog to the great bay area dog parks.

Specialties
Doctors may have more than one area of specialty interest. Board certification in a specialty area means the doctor has completed formal training and has practice experience in that specialty, and has passed the certification examination from the corresponding accredited medical specialty board.
