Growing up in different parts of the world exposed me to various cultures and shaped my views on life—and on working with people of diverse cultural backgrounds. My exposure to medicine came early—our household was full of family members who were health professionals. After graduating from medical school, I completed a neurology residency at the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center. Because of my strong interest in the rapidly evolving field of sleep medicine, I pursued further training at the Center for Sleep Science and Medicine at Stanford University. My goal is to provide the best care possible and to educate the public at large about the impact of sleep disorders on our overall health.
I enjoy caring for adults and children with sleep disorders. I am knowledgeable about and have an interest in all aspects of sleep medicine including sleep-related breathing disorders, sleep-related movement disorders, circadian rhythm disorders, parasomnia, hypersomnia, and insomnia. Kaiser Permanente provides an effective and efficient working environment that allows me to practice evidence-based and cost-effective medicine with a complete focus on member care.
When I am away from work, I like to participate in a variety of indoor and outdoor activities. I enjoy sports, especially watching and playing soccer. I also like to travel.
