I have a strong interest in and experience with Complementary and Alternative Medicine systems. Spine care includes collaborative practice with medical spine specialists, spine surgeons (orthopedic spine surgeons and neurosurgeons), interventional pain services, physical therapy, psychotherapy and behavioral medicine, and complementary and alternative medicine. As a family physician, I am interested in the whole person, wellness and illness management, in the context of the individual’s personal, social, and spiritual values. As an osteopathic physician, I am also interested in manual therapy and the role movement plays in health: long term, this is an active movement program (exercise, stretching, yoga, etc.); and as needed, short term passive movement therapy (osteopathic manual therapy, physical therapy, etc). I am also interested in the management of pain, chronic and acute. I am interested in the role of psychological, cultural, and spiritual beliefs in health and wellness. I am involved in research activities in each of these areas as well.
I believe that health care is set in the context of an individual's personal beliefs about health and wellness and that is in the context of one’s greater social (and spiritual) beliefs. Therefore, it is important for the individual to be actively involved in their choices of approach to treatment and management of their health. It is important to recognize what science has shown us about what is safe and effective. This balance is what is termed integrative, whole person care and includes all of a persons individual, physical, mental, emotional and spiritual value systems in the context of their broader social situation and relationships with their family and greater community. I believe in an integrative approach for the individual and also for the health care team, which is why it is an absolute honor and pleasure to work at the Kaiser Permanente system. In the Kaiser Permanente system, we offer opportunity to work collaboratively with all disciplines in medical care and it is my practice to communicate with all of your physicians and providers to maintain a focus on what is your chosen treatment algorithm. I know of no other practice opportunity than the Kaiser Permanente system that provides this integration so robustly. I encourage you to discuss all the concerns that you have in order for us to choose what is the very best possible approach to your care for you. The Permanente Medical Group has the unique advantage of integrating the care experience of our patient across disciplines and medical centers to maximize your benefit.
After obtaining my Doctor of Osteopathic Medicine degree at the University of Osteopathic Medicine and Health Sciences in Des Moines, Iowa, I completed a residency in Family Medicine at Oregon Health Sciences University Hospital in Portland, OR. I am a Fellow of the American Academy of Family Medicine. My practice is currently restricted to spine care, here at the San Jose Medical Center at Kaiser Permanente in San Jose. I am also the Director for Spine Care Services as well as Complementary and Alternative Medicine for Northern California Kaiser Permanente Medical Care Program.
I am also proud to be a Team Physician for the San Jose Sharks®.
