Welcome to my Web page! I am very happy that you have taken the first step in taking ownership of your health by getting to know your health care provider. I hope that this page will allow you to learn a little about me and the things that are important to me.
I was very fortunate to grow up here in Southern California and went to UCLA for my undergraduate studies. After eight cold winters of medical school and residency, I returned back to California to join Kaiser Permanente Riverside Medical Center! I truly enjoy my work as an Ob/Gyn physician. When I am not at work, I can be found catching a movie, enjoying the outdoors, and trying out new cuisines.
I enjoy the time I spend with my staff, colleagues, and members. I believe that every person deserves to be treated with patience, respect, and kindness. At the same time, everyone should also have the same regard for their own well-being and take responsibility for their own health.
Staying well encompasses the mind, body, and spirit. It is never too late to start! I try to stay physically active by hiking and being active outdoors. Yoga is one of my favorite activities. It teaches us to be kind to our own bodies and to avoid the temptation of comparing and validating ourselves against others.
