Hi, My name is Tamara Pleshakov and I'm an emergency medicine physician here at Kaiser Permanente Los Angeles Medical Center. Welcome to my Web page.
I'm from New York City and Vancouver, Canada. I just moved to Los Angeles and am thrilled to be at Kaiser Permanente.
Emergency medicine is all about teamwork, which is one of many reasons I love this specialty. The doctors, nurses, and technicians in the Emergency Department at the Los Angeles Medical Center are wonderful people that support each other and their patients. Even though I am an emergency medicine physician, preventive care is very important to me. So in addition to helping members with what has brought them to the ER, I encourage them to take care of their general health, including paying attention to exercise and good nutrition.
I love to do anything outside and enjoy the sunshine (with a hat of course). Exercising and preparing good food are how I try to stay well.
