Welcome! I am a family practice physician at Kaiser Permanente's Stockdale Medical Offices. I appreciate your visit to my Web site, and I look forward to meeting you and your family and helping you meet your health goals.
From a young age I was always interested in science, especially human biology. Being very curious about diseases and their cures, I felt passionate about helping people cope with their illnesses and get healthy again. Before coming to the United States, I completed medical school and worked in the Netherlands. I furthered my training in Michigan, worked in Florida, and finally found my home in California.
In my practice, I like to encourage my patients to take an active role in their health care. I enjoy helping them make good choices and achieve good health as a result. Being a physician at Kaiser Permanente allows me to help my patients meet this goal.
I enjoy spending free time participating with my family in sports such as skiing, tennis, and badminton. Watching soccer, reading books, and doing crafts are some of my favorite activities too. And our family loves to visit new places all over the world.
