Hi, I’m Dr. Mayeli. Welcome to my Web page.
My medical school training came from St. George’s University in Grenada, where it was sometimes difficult to focus on your studies when a warm Caribbean breeze tempted you to escape to the beach. However, I passed my boards and moved back to California to be with family. I served my internship and residency at Los Angeles King Drew Medical Center. In 2006, I was invited to join Kaiser Permanente and have enjoyed my tenure here. As an ob-gyn physician, I am often privileged to share a most joyous time with my patients: The birth of a child. I also find satisfaction in assisting teenage women chart their way into womanhood and aiding older women to discover new meaning and happiness in their later years. I enjoy being a part of Kaiser Permanente’s Ob/Gyn Department in Lancaster. We work well together and have developed a unique team whose goal is to deliver quality care in a warm and welcoming environment.
Being a successful physician is all about clear communication. I need to be able to listen to my patients and offer ideas on how best to deal with a given situation. Ultimately, it is the patient’s responsibility to become an active participant in her own well-being. I can suggest a treatment path, but it’s up to the patient to follow it. Only by developing a solid patient/doctor trust can the desired medical outcome be achieved.
Outside of work, I lead a very active lifestyle. I love to surf and ride my mountain bike. Adventure is always just around the corner. I’ve climbed Mount Kilimanjaro in Africa and someday would like to scale Mount Everest.
