Hello, and welcome to my Web page! As a hospitalist, my practice consists exclusively of taking care of members who are admitted to the hospital.
I grew up in San Diego and went to Stanford University for my undergraduate studies. I stayed on “the Farm” (the campus at Stanford) to attend Stanford Medical School. I then moved to Los Angeles for my residency at UCLA. I enjoy the art and science of medicine. Each person has a different experience of disease, and I think it is important to tailor my care to each person’s needs and concerns.
My philosophy of care is that you, the member, come first. I am part of your medical team, and I work closely with social workers, physical therapists, nurses, case managers, and other doctors to ensure that we care for what is going on with your mind and body.
I stay healthy by running and hiking in my neighborhood, trying new recipes, cooking from scratch, exploring Los Angeles, spending time with my friends and family, and playing and listening to music.
