Welcome to my Web page. My primary role as a physician is to support your body's natural ability to heal.
I've had strong, broad training through UC San Francisco School of Medicine and my residency training at UCLA. My real passion is preventive medicine and chronic disease management, where I can truly be a partner with my patients in the shared interest of their health and well-being.
Kaiser Permanente is the perfect place for me to provide comprehensive care to my patients through a team approach utilizing my services as well as those of specialists. I enjoy treating people of all ages, especially in the realms of sports medicine, adolescent medicine, and women's health. I regularly perform simple sports medicine and gynecologic procedures. I believe that a treatment plan built on trust and frequent, open communication is essential to success with your health. Your relationships with your environment and others have as great an influence on your health as do the foods you eat and medicine you take.
I follow my own advice, exercising most days of the week with jogging, walking, riding the stationary bike, or yoga. I make sure to laugh every day and eat a lot of fruits, vegetables, and beans.
