Welcome to my Web page. I'm happy to have this chance to introduce myself and tell you about my work. I am a pediatric endocrinology and diabetes specialist and have been practicing for about 10 years in Southern California. I am excited to have the privilege of taking care of your child.
I was born in Iran, and grew up in Sweden beginning in my teens. I speak Persian and Swedish fluently. I graduated from high school in Sweden, and then moved to the U.S. to further my education. I then earned my medical degree from Mount Sinai School of Medicine in New York. I moved to California after that, and worked at Loma Linda University Medical Center for three years before joining Kaiser Permanente, where I have been for the past seven years.
I feel very honored that patients have entrusted me with their care, and always strive to do my best for them. My mission is to help you achieve optimal health through promoting a healthy lifestyle and disease prevention. I will care for you when you are sick and when you are well. I provide high quality, compassionate care through open communication and respect for your concerns. I have a philosophy of providing the most current evidence-based health care for my patients, and I believe the family is an active partner in medical decisions. I am board certified in both pediatrics and pediatric endocrinology.
I firmly believe that our lifestyles have a great impact on our health. We need to remember that preventive care and healthy living are big parts of staying healthy.
