Welcome to my Web page. I’m happy to have this chance to introduce myself to you and tell you about my practice. I feel very fortunate to work at Kaiser Permanente because of my wonderful colleagues and members, and I look forward to working with you to care for your health.
I went to undergraduate and medical school on the East Coast and completed my residency at UC Irvine. I then joined a private practice group in Virginia, where I enjoyed the broad experience—from outpatient and urgent care to acute hospital care. I also served as a clinical instructor for medical residents. However, I missed the weather and my family, so I decided to return to Southern California. I appreciate the opportunity to continue my medical career here.
Practicing medicine is a very special opportunity to connect with and help people in a meaningful way, not only utilizing medical skills and knowledge, but also listening and responding to what members need. Being a doctor allows people to share with me their innermost secrets, fears, and hopes. It’s a privilege to help members understand what concerns them, translate what they may not grasp, get them appropriate evaluations, and communicate with them and their families. I feel very honored that members have entrusted me with their care, and I strive to treat them as I would my own family.
I firmly believe in the philosophy of caring for the health of the whole person, and I try to live it in my life every day. My family life is my major priority. I enjoy taking my children to their extracurricular activities on my days off. I’m actively involves in the local Boy Scouts and Girl Scouts on weekends, and I appreciate family time. We enjoy taking vacations to different parts of the country. I follow a healthy diet and a daily exercise routine. I’m glad to find a balance in my busy life.
