Welcome to my Web page. I really enjoy working here. My staff and colleagues are knowledgeable and supportive. I am blessed to be part of a team of wonderful professionals. I feel very honored that patients have entrusted me with their care and strive to treat them as I would my own family.
I was born in Romania and graduated from medical school in my home town of Craiova. I worked as a dermatologist in Romania until 2001, when I moved to the United States. I later on became a proud American and finished my family medicine residency training in Indianapolis, Indiana. I am board certified in family medicine, and I worked as a family physician in Indianapolis before I decided to follow my husband to California. I’ve moved a lot in my life, but I really feel at home at Kaiser Permanente in the Inland Empire.
Coming from Romania, where preventative medicine was not a priority and I was, too often, treating patients with advanced diseases, I feel that a healthy lifestyle and preventive care are the best ways to stay healthy, but I’m also here to help you when you are sick. 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 health.
My husband, teenage daughter, and I enjoy traveling, cooking, hiking, and listening to classical music together. I also love dancing and Zumba.
