Philosophy of Care

My role is to help you deal with the challenges that come with a diagnosis of multiple sclerosis. This includes treating the underlying disease with disease-modifying drugs, management of MS-related symptoms such as cognitive problems, fatigue and difficulty walking. We strive to work as a team, involving other staff members, rehabilitation professionals and consultants. Educating the you and your family and providing a program to achieve maximum wellness and quality of life is a top priority.

Personal Information

I have always been drawn to people with disability. So, I chose Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation as my specialty. I find that working in multiple sclerosis is always challenging and rewarding on a personal level.
I grew up in Colorado and California, the son of a nurse and a radiologist. After residency, I wanted to work with disadvantaged patients and spent nine years at a leprosy and rehabilitation center in Northern Thailand. I came back with a lot of good memories and married a nurse who I met over there. Together, we have a son who is going to public school in Kirkland and always keeping his parents entertained. In my free time, I enjoy going to soccer games, jogging, gardening, listening to audio books. I am a dog-lover.

Community Involvement

I am on the Healthcare Advisory Committee of the National Multiple Sclerosis Society and meet with three MS Support groups on a regular basis.
I have helped teach a course to physical therapy, occupational therapy and orthotist students at the University of Washington annually since 2005.
