Welcome to my Web page. I am a maternal fetal medicine physician—a specialist in caring for high-risk pregnancies. This means that I help women who have medical conditions affecting the pregnancy or are suspected to have abnormal development of their unborn babies. I also see moms who are considered to have high-risk pregnancies because of other reasons, such as their age or reproductive history. I hope that by working closely with members, I can help positively affect their pregnancies.
I was born and raised in Armenia. On my 15th birthday, my family moved to the United States, and my parents worked very hard to help my sister and I achieve our American dream. I have a very energetic and sweet daughter who reminds me daily of what the important things in life are. My husband and I are blessed to have a small but truly amazing extended family who have been our support throughout our journey.
In my practice, I like to focus on getting to know members. I truly believe that different things are important to different people. An approach that may help one member could be a prescription for failure to another. I pride myself in being very meticulous and attentive to members’ healthcare needs. I work with a wonderful team of nurses, sonographers, and medical assistants who are vital in providing the highest level of care to members. When you come to our office, you feel that you are among family and friends—people who care and strive to do everything in their power to make your pregnancy pleasant and healthy.
I believe that health starts from within. You can be the healthiest person with all the perfect lab tests, but if you don't have the peace within, your health is not complete. I’ve learned a lot from the members I see—moms who give everything for their children and often neglect to care for themselves. I live well by doing simple things for myself, although often they involve the presence of my family as well. Whether it be the family walks in our neighborhood or the late-night strolls on the Pacific Ocean shore, I make sure that I have some time to relax and reflect on things that truly matter in life.
