Welcome to my Web page and the Department of Allergy & Immunology at Kaiser Permanente South Bay. I look forward to working with you to care for your health.
Born, raised, and schooled here, I love living in California. I was born in Santa Monica, grew up in Encino, and am proud to hold degrees from Stanford University, where I did my undergraduate work, and UCLA, where I completed medical school and residency.
I worked in the Department of Pediatrics as a general pediatrician for the first five years of my career at Kaiser Permanente South Bay. I then completed an Allergy/Immunology fellowship program at Kaiser Permanente Los Angeles. And now I am back at Kaiser Permanente South Bay as an Allergist/Immunologist. I work with both children and adults (and their families) to try and manage their allergy and immunology problems so they can lead healthier and happier lives.
In today's world, where multi-tasking and stress frequently threaten our well-being, it is very important to value and safeguard our good health. Time spent with friends and family, exercise, yoga, laughter, music, massage, and simple relaxation are tools I use to achieve a well-balanced life. I encourage you to find the activities that will help you to thrive too.
