Welcome and thank you for visiting my page. I'm excited to be able to share a little about myself with you. I believe it's very important to select a physician that you will be comfortable with and I hope this page will help you start to get to know me.
I grew up in Boston. Since high school, I knew I wanted to become a physician and I'm blessed to be able to fulfill that dream. I did my undergraduate studies at Brandeis University. I moved to sunny Southern California after falling in love with the people and weather during my vacation here. I eventually moved to Los Angeles after I graduated from Brandeis and went to medical school at Western University of Health Sciences. After finishing my family medicine residency at Kaiser Permanente Los Angeles Medical Center, I stayed on and joined the family.
I believe medicine is an art and everyone is unique. I enjoy learning about people's innermost secrets, fears, hopes, and the things that make each person different. Only through good knowledge of people can I truly partner with them to improve their health.
I live well by having a good balance of work and family life. The things that help me stay balanced are my family and friends, exercise, great food, photography, and occasional travel. I enjoy yoga, hiking, swimming, and boogie boarding at the beach. I'm very adventurous with food and love to travel to different countries.
