About Me

Hello, and welcome to my Kaiser Permanente Web page. I’ve been a member of the Department of Family Medicine at our West Los Angeles Medical Center since 1994. I’m happy to have this chance to introduce myself to you and tell you about my practice.


I grew up in Los Angeles and attended college at UCLA. I wanted to be a physician from an early age, in part because of my admiration for the dedicated, generous, and compassionate physicians and dentists who touched my life.

About my practice

For over 11 years, I provided care for inpatients at the West Los Angeles Medical Center. Currently I see members of all ages who are not hospitalized. I enjoy building long-term relationships with my members and their families. In partnership with my nurse, we strive to keep you healthy. Our goal is to provide education and information that makes you an active partner in the medical decision-making process.

How I thrive

I try to stay healthy by keeping a positive, optimistic outlook. I reserve time for family and close friends. We enjoy sharing music together, hiking in the Santa Monica Mountains, or spending time at the beach.
