Hello, and welcome to my Web page!
After growing up in the San Gabriel Valley, I attended and graduated from Columbia University in New York City, where I majored in neuroscience and behavior. During that time, I started getting involved in immunology and dermatology research at UCLA. I subsequently attended the University of Michigan Medical School (Go BLUE!) where I spent a research year studying the role of the immune system in psoriasis. I stayed at the University of Michigan for my dermatology residency, and after many years away from home, I returned home to Southern California where I joined Kaiser Permanente Woodland Hills Medical Center in 2017.
My goal is to provide comprehensive dermatological care through a wide array of different services. My particular interests include skin cancer screening, acne, eczema, rosacea, psoriasis, and warts, among other skin conditions. Outside of the office, I enjoy participating in the improvement of health care information technology and medical student education.
I'm an avid supporter of my hometown Lakers, Michigan Wolverines, and now the Los Angeles Rams, so you may find me at any one of these games. I like to get my regular exercise by playing tennis and heading to the driving range.
