About Me

Thank you for visiting my Web page. I'd like to tell you a little bit about my pediatrics practice, and myself.


I was born at Kaiser Permanente in Los Angeles and went to medical school in the Bronx. I returned to Kaiser Permanente for my residency in pediatrics. At Cedars-Sinai in Los Angeles, I trained in neonatology so that I can take care of premature and sick newborns. I feel really at home at the Kaiser Permanente Los Angeles Medical Center on Sunset, where I am a physician both in the outpatient clinic and in the intensive care nursery. I can converse in Spanish and Hebrew, as well as English.

About my practice

The pediatricians in our department are friendly and knowledgeable. We are dedicated to working closely with you to help care for your children's health. HealthConnect® makes it possible to connect with us online as well − sometimes we can answer questions from home, see pictures of rashes − we hope to work with you.

How I thrive

I feel it's important to strike a balance between work and home life and to enjoy whatever you are doing. As a memorable nurse used to tell us as students, "Put a smile on your face!" − if you act happy, you probably will be.
