Hello, and welcome to my Web page. I am a physician in the Physical Medicine Rehabilitation Department at Kaiser Permanente’s Los Angeles Medical Center.
I was born and raised in California. I attended medical school on the East Coast. It was a good experience, but I wanted to return to California after graduating. My aunt was a surgeon. She and I were very close. She was the main reason that I became a doctor. My parents, husband, and children have been very supportive.
My department includes physicians, a registered nurse, medical assistants, physical therapists, occupational therapists, speech therapists, receptionists, and administrative staff. We work together to care for our patients.
Work keeps me very busy, so the time I have away from it is primarily spent with family and friends, sometimes doing something fun or just helping out other family members who need assistance.
