About Me

Hello, and welcome to my Web page. I'm happy to have this chance to introduce myself to you and tell you about my practice. I look forward to seeing you and working with you to care for your health.


I was raised in Southern California, and I had the same Kaiser Permanente family physician throughout my childhood. Even when I was a young child, I knew I wanted to be a doctor, just like my grandparents in the Philippines. With my parents' encouragement and support, I studied American literature at UCLA, pursued medicine at Loyola University in Chicago, and became chief resident of family medicine at Long Beach Memorial Medical Center. I feel so fortunate to now be working at Kaiser Permanente, just like one of my childhood role models. I hope that I too can inspire members to work on improving their health and the health of others around them.

About my practice

One of the best things about being a family physician is taking care of entire families. My goal is to work with you to keep you happy and healthy, so that you can enjoy your time with your loved ones and keep doing the things that matter most to you. I am eager to share with you my ideas about healthy living and preventive care, but I am also here to listen to your concerns and take care of you when you are sick. I am honored that people entrust me with their care, and I hope that we can partner together to keep you in good health.

How I thrive

I do my best to live out the saying "laughter is the best medicine," and I keep myself happy and healthy by spending time with my family and friends. I also enjoy training for half marathons, hiking through national parks, sampling new cuisines, and visiting Disneyland regularly.
