Welcome! I am excited to be a part of Kaiser Permanente, and for the opportunity to share a little about myself.
I am from Los Angeles, and I was a patient myself at Kaiser Permanente Baldwin Park Medical Center when I was growing up. I went to UCLA for my undergraduate studies, the Albert Einstein College of Medicine in New York for medical school, and UC Irvine for my residency training. When it came time to select where I wanted to practice, I knew I wanted to stay in Southern California to be close to family. I was especially drawn to Kaiser Permanente Baldwin Park Medical Center, as it would allow me to help the community where I grew up.
I believe that a healthy lifestyle and preventive care are keys to good health. I also believe that the physician-patient relationship is a partnership where we discuss and agree on a plan together.
Keeping balance is important in my life. I enjoy spending time with friends and family, reading books, and traveling.
