Hello, and welcome to my Web page. As a hospitalist, it’s my job to care for members who have been admitted to the hospital. Being in the hospital can be stressful for the patient and their family, and I pride myself on catering to members’ needs and making sure they receive the best care possible.
As a young doctor, I had the opportunity to grow through a multitude of healthcare systems, patient populations, and cultures. I attended medical school in Lebanon, moved to San Francisco to work as a radiology research specialist at UCSF. I began an internal medicine internship in New York, after which I decided to come back to San Francisco. I then completed my residency in internal medicine at Kaiser Permanente.
Kaiser Permanente is one of the original employee-based health care systems in the country. Kaiser has managed to evolve and progress in advancing the concept of better care for less cost. In my opinion, Kaiser Permanente is a superb example of what the healthcare system in America ought to become. The ample amount of ancillary support, the state-of-the-art electronic charting system, and most importantly, having the hospitalist at the center of a large multidisciplinary team, gives an enormous boost to the efficiency of the medical team in providing quality care and ensuring higher patient satisfaction.
In my free time, I thrive by practicing what I preach. I stay active, exercise regularly, eat healthy, and spend as much time possible around friends and family. That's priceless!
