Hello! Welcome to my Web page and the Allergy and Immunology Department at Kaiser Permanente Culver Marina Medical Offices. It is a privilege to assist with your medical care. I hope to provide you with the highest quality and most up-to-date treatment available.
I knew even as a young child growing up in Southern California that I wanted to practice medicine. I wanted to devote my life to making the world a better place. I believe that Kaiser Permanente is the ideal place for me to do just that. I have great admiration and conviction for Kaiser Permanente's health maintenance philosophy and unique model of health care. I first encountered Kaiser Permanente while in high school, volunteering at the Kaiser Permanente medical center in Orange County. I then received my undergraduate degree at UC Berkeley and my medical degree at UC San Diego. I've been with Kaiser Permanente ever since, completing my UCLA-affiliated residency and fellowship while at Kaiser Permanente Los Angeles.
The Allergy and Immunology Department is committed to providing outstanding medical service for our members. I believe that you will find our staff to be very capable and considerate. We see members of all ages. Our areas of specialty includes asthma, rhinoconjunctivitis (nasal and eye allergies), sinusitis, urticaria (hives), angioedema (swelling), eczema, allergic contact dermatitis, food allergy, drug allergy, anaphylaxis, insect allergy, eosinophil related disorders, mast cell disorders, immunodeficiency, and immune system dysregulation.
The sunny Southern California weather makes it easy to stay active and thrive. I enjoy hiking, in particular, to reach breathtaking views of our city. I play a variety of racquet sports, and I love attending baseball games. I also play the piano and participate in volunteer work. Most of all, I enjoy being with my family, taking good care of Kaiser Permanente members, and maintaining a positive attitude each day and with each person I meet.
