About Me

Welcome to my Web page. I have been working at Kaiser Permanente since 2007. Joining this organization has given me the freedom and independence to treat my members with high-quality care.


I grew up in Los Angeles and went to UC Berkeley, where I earned a degree in English literature. I volunteered for East Bay Hospice for two years, and I loved the patient contact. However, I wanted to do more. So, I decided to become a doctor. I went to UC San Diego for medical school. I completed my residency in internal medicine at Scripps Mercy Hospital and was a chief resident there for a year as well.

About my practice

My practice works as a partnership between you, my office staff, and me. As a team, we can work together to keep you healthy and to diagnose and treat illness as it appears. Communication is key.

How I thrive

I thrive by walking every night for about 45 minutes.
