About Me

Hi, my nickname is Jar. I'm glad to have this opportunity to present my credentials to you and share other information about myself. It's very important that you feel comfortable with your personal physician, and I hope this page will help you start to get to know me.


I spent the first part of my childhood in Manhattan, before moving to Southern California as a teenager. I completed both college and medical school at USC, and then decided to stay here in Southern California to practice. I have a growing family here in Pasadena with two young children, and we all love the outdoor lifestyle Southern California provides us.

About my practice

As a family medicine physician, I care for children, adults, and seniors. Having two children of my own, I love seeing children and families. I pride myself on my interpersonal skills and really try to get to know each member during our visit.

How I thrive

I have a passion for health, diet, and fitness. When not practicing medicine, I love to participate in outdoor recreational activities—tennis, basketball, skiing, snowboarding, and adventure traveling.
