About Me

I am pleased to offer my Web page to members for information, education, and some helpful advice. I am proud to be a Kaiser Permanente physician.


I was born in the Midwest and moved to California with my family in my teens. I attended UCLA undergraduate, medical school, and did my internship, residency and fellowship with UCLA-San Fernando Valley. I have continued as a clinical faculty member of UCLA. I work in Santa Clarita and Lancaster Kaiser Permanente clinics and see members at the Kaiser Permanente area hospitals. I love vacationing with my family and enjoy fishing, swimming, skiing, horseback riding, painting, and volunteering as a teacher of the fifth grade. I am a "Star Wars" enthusiast and a "Trekkie." I love "Star Trek."

About my practice

I believe in teamwork and strive to help members in any way I can. I try to make myself available to answer questions to relieve any concerns. I try to help members in the best way possible. I work with a great team and I believe we do a wonderful job. We have mutual respect for each other, the rest of the staff, and all our members.

How I thrive

I try to balance my family life, work, and many hobbies and sports to thrive. I hope all of you do the same. Make sure you relieve stress and enjoy life. Live long, prosper, and thrive!
