About Me

Welcome to my Web page. This gives me an opportunity to share information about my practice and myself so you can feel as comfortable as possible when you visit the office. But remember, that information goes both ways, so feel free to ask any questions, or discuss any issue with my staff or me.


I have been a family doctor for almost 30 years here in Los Angeles, including a solo private practice and here at Kaiser Permanente for the last ten years.

About my practice

My role and the role of my staff is to see that you get the care you need. But caring for your health is a partnership. A large part of that partnership involves you eating healthy, staying active and taking time off to recharge, explore and relax. As your family doctor, I want to give you a medical "home" - a place familiar to you, where you are known and you know that everyone there cares about you. My office is the first place you go when you have a problem, if you need advice, or when you don't know what to do.

How I thrive

Travel gives me new experiences and broadens my view of the world. Whether traveling across town, visiting one of California's natural wonders, or going halfway around the world, I gain valuable experience. I spend much of my free time outdoors whether hiking, backpacking or gardening at home. Through the Sierra Club, I teach others how to enjoy being outside in wilderness safely.
