About Me

I am excited and blessed to be part of Kaiser Permanente. My wonderful patients and colleagues are some of the many reasons I feel this way. I am looking forward to working with you to be your partner for good health.


I have been in Southern California since 1975, and I love the diversity of our area. I truly enjoy meeting people and learn from everyone's experience. I was a computer engineer before going to medical school here. I am happily married, and I enjoy singing despite not having a good voice.

About my practice

I believe in preventive health care, in the connection between mind and body. Medications are not the first line of treatment, although we do often need them. Above all, I want to be your partner in health.

How I thrive

I believe in the holistic approach to healthy living. Keeping balance in life with good nutrition, good physical activities, good rest, good laughter, and good company with friends and family is very important. I work hard, but I also have time for jogging, gardening, volunteer work, and sharing time with my family and friends.
