Welcome to my Web page. I am happy to have this chance to introduce myself and tell you about my practice. I have been extremely fortunate to work at Kaiser Permanente, where I have outstanding colleagues. I wholeheartedly look forward to working together with you to care for your health.
I was born in Los Angeles. I was the first in my family to attend college at Stanford University where I majored in Chemistry as an undergraduate. An intense desire for teaching inspired me to get an advanced degree in Education during my senior year in College I continued on at Stanford Medical School and after graduation did an Internship in Internal Medicine and a residency in Dermatology
My practice is medical dermatology, consisting of the diagnosis of skin cancers and the diagnosis and treatment of skin and scalp disorders. I feel patients should be placed first. Above all, I will be honest with you. I feel every patient should be treated with due respect and dignity regardless of his or her social status or background. I strive to treat patients as I would my own family members.
I thrive by relaxing in my off time, visiting my grandmother, going out with friends, and watching television. I love to travel, and am studying Portuguese in at a local university.
