Hello, and welcome to my Kaiser Permanente Web page. This is a great opportunity to introduce myself to help you get to know me better.
I was born and raised in Southern California. In fact, I am proud to say that I was born at Kaiser Permanente’s Los Angeles Medical Center on Sunset, so it may be fate that I am now a physician working here. I went to medical school in the Philippines and completed my residency training in New Jersey. I returned to Southern California with much enthusiasm since my family still resides here. I have worked in several Kaiser Permanente facilities throughout the years, but have truly found South Bay Medical Center to be home.
I am a firm believer in preventive medicine and the concept that every person has the responsibility to take ownership of his/her health. I consider myself a steward of your health, here to impart my years of training to you and guide you to a better well-being. As an internist, I work both in the clinic and hospital setting, so I’m aware of the complexities that can occur within a broad spectrum of medicine.
I thrive by enjoying the simple things in life. I am happy to have established my roots in the South Bay with my husband and our new dog. I enjoy reading, traveling, exploring new foodie places, and spending time with family and friends.
