Hello, and welcome to my Web page! Thanks for taking the time to look me up. It’s an honor to support the health and well-being of so many unique individuals and to have the support of hundreds of knowledgeable and caring colleagues here at Fontana Medical Center.
I’m originally from Northern California and spent my first 20 years in Marin County and the greater Bay Area. I moved to Southern California to receive medical training at UC Irvine and to complete my residency at the VA Medical Center in Long Beach. I have worked at Kaiser Permanente in Fontana since 1989.
My practice is built on open and honest communication. I strive to be a careful listener. The long-term relationships that we establish in internal medicine present many opportunities for sharing. I have to say that this has been one of the best parts of my job. The other great part is preventive care; I encourage my patients to invest in their health and well-being by keeping all their routine health screenings up to date. Maintaining and improving the health of my patients is a team effort. I frequently use my powers of persuasion to help my patients make the best health decisions for their long-term health.
I thrive by seeking new experiences and acquiring new skills. Two of the things I enjoy are running and reading technical publications.
