About me

I was born and raised in New York City to a single mother who instilled in me that hard work, dedication and perseverance would lead me to success. Going to high school in Brooklyn, N.Y., I learned how health care disparities and socioeconomic statuses drive health outcomes. From this, I developed a passion for medicine and combating disease that affects all communities. I have been blessed with a beautiful son who was born during my residency training. Thus, I know the value of family and the importance of balancing motherhood, wellness and a career.

About my practice

I am an advocate for healthy doctor-patient relationships. Thus, incorporating our members' ideas and concerns in the decision-making process is important to my practice. During my years of training, I noticed how cultural beliefs and traditional practices can have a significant impact on a patient's health outcome. Thus, I try to incorporate these practices into patient care so that they may have positive impacts on my patients' health. Lastly, treating the body holistically is important to me. It often takes the combination of mind, body and spirit to combat disease.

How I thrive

Our weekends are packed! We enjoy catching up with friends, weekend road trips, attending festivals and cultural events. However, our rituals are what allow us to tackle the busy work week. Hitting the gym, trying new healthy recipes, reading and burning candles with light music is our routine for Sundays. It helps us get energetic and ready for the week ahead.

The information in this online directory is updated periodically. The availability of physicians, hospitals, providers, and services may change. Before receiving care at a facility, select that location in our directory and verify the accepted plan types under "About this facility" to make sure it is available in your plan. If no plan types are listed, the facility is available for all plan types.

Kaiser Permanente uses the same quality, member experience, or cost-related measures to select practitioners and facilities in Marketplace Silver-tier plans as it does for all other Kaiser Foundation Health Plan (KFHP) products and lines of business. The measures may include, but are not limited to, HEDIS/CAHPS performance, member/patient complaints, patient safety scores, hospital quality measures, and geographic need. Members enrolled in KFHP Marketplace plans have access to all professional, institutional and ancillary health care providers who participate in KFHP plans' contracted provider network, in accordance with the terms of the members' KFHP plan of coverage. All Kaiser Permanente Medical Group physicians and network physicians are subject to the same quality review processes and certifications.

Kaiser Permanente uses the same geographic distribution consideration to select hospitals in Marketplace plans as it does for all other Kaiser Foundation Health Plan (KFHP) products and lines of business.

Information about a practitioner is provided to us by the practitioner or the practitioner's network, or is obtained as part of the credentialing process. Board certification may not reflect contracted services available from practitioners listed in our directory. If you have questions regarding this or about any of our practitioners, call us at 1-800-611-1811 (toll free). For the hearing and speech impaired: 1-888-865-5813 or 711 (TTY).
