Welcome to my Web page. I'm happy to have this chance to introduce myself to you and tell you about my practice. I feel very fortunate to work at Kaiser Permanente because of my wonderful colleagues and patients, and look forward to working with you to care for your health.
I moved from the San Francisco Bay Area to Los Angeles to start my residency training in internal medicine but fell in love with the sunny weather and made Southern California my home for good. I enjoy traveling, attending diverse cultural events, listening to classical music, and have discovered a new interest in cooking.
A career in medicine represents a unique and rare opportunity to help others in a very meaningful way, namely to promote and better an individual's health. I believe that my roles as your physician are many. They include being your facilitator, your advisor, your partner, and most importantly, your advocate. It is this special relationship that motivates me and provides me with a sense of fulfillment. I feel very honored that patients have entrusted me with their health and I strive to treat them as I would any member of my family.
I enjoy hiking, playing tennis and working out at the gym. One of my most notable physical accomplishments was climbing Half Dome in Yosemite National Park.
