Welcome to our practice! I feel very fortunate to be part of the Kaiser Permanente family, providing quality care based on up-to-date research and methods to such a diverse patient group.
I was born in Brooklyn, New York, and grew up in a small town in Northern California. We moved to Southern California when I was in my teens. I went into medicine because it was the perfect opportunity to combine my interest in science with community outreach. In my moments of free time, you'll find me on the floor wrestling with my two dogs.
Medicine as a career is a very special opportunity to connect and help people in a meaningful way, utilizing medical skills and knowledge, but also listening and responding to what patients need. It is a privilege to help patients understand what concerns them. To help me communicate with as many patients as possible, I am learning Spanish and currently speak at an intermediate level.
I try to take time for moments of fresh air, exercise, and friends (including the ones with four legs).
