Welcome to my Web page. I am happy to have this chance to introduce myself to you and tell you about my practice. I feel very fortunate to work at Kaiser Permanente because of my wonderful colleagues and patients, and look forward to working with you to care for your health.
I grew up in the beautiful country of Greece. After high school, I decided to come to the United States for my higher education. I did my undergraduate and medical studies in New York. I then came out to Southern California and did my residency in radiation oncology at Kaiser Permanente. I loved the department I trained in and feel fortunate to have been able to stay on as an attending physician. I love to exercise and travel, frequently returning to Greece for holidays.
Medicine as a career is a very special opportunity to connect and help people in a meaningful way, utilizing medical skills and knowledge, but also listening and responding to what members need. Being a doctor allows people to share with me their fears and hopes; it is a privilege to help members understand what concerns them, translate what they may not grasp, facilitate getting them the appropriate evaluations, and to communicate with them and their families.
Keeping balance in my life is very important to me. Spending time with family and friends, cooking, reading and exercising regularly help me feel at my best.
