Welcome to my Web page. I am happy to have this chance to introduce myself to you and tell you about my practice. I feel very fortunate to work at Kaiser Permanente because of my wonderful colleagues and members, and I look forward to working with you to care for your health.
I was born in beautiful Riga, Latvia. After finishing medical school in Riga, I came to the United States. I graduated from the internal medicine program in San Francisco and soon after became a physician with Kaiser Permanente.
I feel that healthy living and preventive care are the best ways to stay healthy, but I am also here to help you when you are sick. It is a privilege to help members understand what concerns them, translate what they may not grasp, help them get the appropriate evaluations, and communicate with them and their families. I feel very honored that members have entrusted me with their care and strive to treat them as I would my own family.
My professional life is very busy. However, I look forward every evening to spending time with my family. This makes me happy, as does taking long walks with my wife whenever possible and traveling with my family.
