About Me

I'm glad to have this opportunity to present my credentials to you and share other information about myself. It's very important that you feel comfortable with your personal physician, and I hope this page will help you start to get to know me.


I grew up in Southern California but have lived in many different cities around the United States for schooling. This has given me a broad perspective on cultures and behaviors of the diverse peoples in this country. I feel this has helped my practice in internal medicine to help serve the needs of our community.

About my practice

A career in medicine is a very special opportunity to connect with and help people in a meaningful way, utilizing medical skills and knowledge, but also listening and responding to what members need. I feel that healthy living and preventive care are the best ways to stay healthy, but I'm also here to help you when you are sick. I want to be your partner in health, and it helps me better care for you when you are actively involved in taking care of your health.

How I thrive

I try to maintain a balanced life with work and play. I believe in the Kaiser Permanente philosophy of caring for the health of the whole person. I engage in outdoor sports, work out at the gym at least three times per week, and stay active with my friends.
