About Me

Welcome to my Web page and thank you for allowing me to introduce myself. I look forward to the opportunity to get to know you and to work with you in the future.


I was born in San Fernando in 1968. I cannot remember ever wanting do anything else besides being a doctor. I graduated from Colgate University in upstate New York in 1990 with a degree in chemistry. I received my MD from New York Medical College in 1995. I did my residency training in internal medicine at the Kaiser Permanente Los Angeles Medical Center. My daughter was born in 2001. I enjoy chess, pool, gardening, football, and golf.

About my practice

I try to create as much of a relaxed atmosphere in my office as possible. I hope that this makes it easier to communicate with members and that they will then feel comfortable asking questions or discussing any conditions or concerns. I hope that as my patient, you will also form a relationship with my nurses and staff, as I consider anyone involved in the management of health to be a part of a team.

How I thrive

I am a strong believer in the mind-body connection. I have observed that people who are well spiritually and emotionally are also healthier physically. I incorporate this into my practice.
