Welcome to my Web page. I’m happy to have this opportunity to introduce myself to you and tell you about my practice. It’s very important that you feel comfortable with your personal physician, and I hope this page will help you start to get to know me. I look forward to working with you to care for your health.
I have lived in Southern California for most of my life. As far back as I can remember, I always wanted to be a doctor. I grew up in a large extended family with grandparents and a great grandmother who occasionally received home visits by their doctors. I consider being in medicine a huge privilege because it gives me the opportunity to meet and care for people of all ages and different backgrounds. My members enrich my life.
I feel that healthy living and preventive care are the best ways to stay healthy. I want to be your partner in health, and it helps me better care for you when you are actively involved in taking care of your own health. Good communication is very important in any successful partnership, and this one is no different. Knowledge will empower you. I will listen carefully to your concerns and needs, and help you understand your diagnosis and treatment options. I feel very honored that members have entrusted me with their care and strive to treat them as I would my own family.
Work and family life balance is very important to me. While I find my work very rewarding, I feel that spending time with my family is just as important. I enjoy cheering for my children at their soccer and baseball games, spending time at their schools as a parent volunteer, and going on camping and snow trips.
