Hello, and thank you for visiting my Web page! I am extremely happy to have the opportunity to serve your healthcare needs. I will work very hard to provide you the best possible individualized care, and hope to be your doctor through many years of good health.
I was born and raised in East Los Angeles, and earned my undergraduate degree in physiology and neuroscience at UC San Diego. I attended medical school at UCLA through the Charles Drew program, where I was so fortunate to make amazing friends from all walks of life. I also had the opportunity to engage in community outreach, and volunteer in underserved communities. I did my internal medicine residency training at UC Davis. I graduated through the primary care track, and I am passionate about working closely with my patients to improve the quality of their lives.
I believe in patient-centered care. I listen closely to your questions and concerns with the goal of providing the best care possible that is right for you. Preventive healthcare is a big part of my practice, and I assist my patients to lead a healthy lifestyle.
I believe in staying active. This means balancing work, staying fit, and spending time with my family, close friends, and my puppy Rocky. I enjoy travel, exercise, and shopping, and look for every opportunity to smile and laugh!
