Dónde ejerzo mi práctica médica
Acerca de mí
I was born and raised in the Los Angeles area. My father, a retired corporate tax attorney, recommended that I pursue a career in medicine. I always loved math and science and initially wanted to be a veterinarian but when I entered college, a good family friend who was also a physician persuaded me to pursue medicine for humans instead of for animals. I came to work for the Hawaii Permanente Medical Group (HPMG) because I always loved Hawaii and also because I was very impressed with the Kaiser Permanente care delivery model.
Acerca de mi práctica médica
During my general surgery residency, I was very impressed with the vascular surgeons. I like that vascular surgery involves procedures on multiple anatomical areas within the body and that it combines open surgical and minimally invasive procedures. The care at HPMG is team-based and the delivery system is far more integrated and coordinated than in the private practice world. HPMG is a high-quality medical group with a wealth of extremely well-trained and knowledgeable physicians. In my practice, I strive to provide state-of-the-art vascular care in a compassionate, timely, and efficient manner, and have fun while doing it. I enjoy talking with patients and their families in the clinic, in the hospital, and before, during, and after surgery. I also provide leadership for the medical group in areas of healthcare reform, benefits design, contracting, and coordinating medical care for our members outside the Kaiser Permanente delivery system.
Cómo vivo bien
I exercise daily and I try to eat a healthy, mostly plant-based diet. I enjoy spending time with my family and friends, good food, and running, biking, swimming, and other sports.
