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 physician, and I hope this page will help you start to get to know me.
I’m a native Southern Californian who grew up as a Kaiser Permanente member. Even when I was a young child, I knew I wanted to be a doctor. I wanted to be able to make a real difference in people’s lives. Practicing medicine at Kaiser Permanente helps give me that opportunity. I’ve been with Kaiser Permanente for about 25 years.
A career in medicine is a very special opportunity to connect with and help people in a meaningful way, utilizing medical skills and knowledge, and also responding to what members need. Being a doctor allows people to share with me their innermost secrets, fears, and hopes. It’s a privilege to help members understand what concerns them, translate what they may not grasp, get them appropriate evaluations, and communicate with them and their families. I feel very honored that members have entrusted me with their care, and I strive to treat them as I would my own family. I’m a general neurologist and see all types of neurological disorders.
Keeping balance in my life is very important to me. I enjoy my work but I also value my time off because it allows me to spend time with my family.
