Welcome to my Web page. I am a family medicine physician. I completed my internship and residency training here at Kaiser Permanente Los Angeles Medical Center, where I now have the pleasure to work.
I was born and raised in sunny Southern California, and am glad to be back after spending many years away. I graduated from UC Berkeley with a bachelor's degree in biology and genetics, and earned a master's degree in physiology from Georgetown University. I attended medical school in New York.
Being a family medicine physician means I take care of all ages, young and old. I enjoy doing minor procedures in our urgent care surgical services clinic. I also take care of people in the hospital setting. Having a fondness for teaching, I often work with residents and medical students in training. You may meet some of them during your visit with me! I believe in treating the whole person. To prevent disease, I advocate for a healthy and well-rounded lifestyle.
I stay balanced by spending time with family and friends, trying new foods and restaurants, cooking, traveling, exercising, and doing yoga. I enjoy coming to work every day, and being surrounded by amazing, inspiring colleagues, nurses, staff, and most of all, my patients.
