About Me

Hello, and welcome! I’m pleased to make your acquaintance, and I look forward to meeting you in person and helping out in any way I can. Your health and happiness are of the utmost importance to me—and to the superb staff here at Kaiser Permanente in West Los Angeles. We are constantly looking for ways to serve you better.


Beautiful Southern California—where else can you swim outdoors year-round? Being able to practice medicine here makes me feel very fortunate. I’ve heard it said that, "God heals and the physician gets the thanks." This may be true, but a wise and funny woman named Erma Bombeck once said, "Never go to a doctor whose office plants have died." I’m happy to tell you that our plants are doing just fine.

About my practice

Our members are family to us. We want to keep you healthy and living well while you pursue your dreams.

How I thrive

Having survived cancer myself, I’ve been on both ends of the stethoscope. One of the best things about working here is that the entire team shares the philosophy rooted in keeping people well, not just treating them once they’ve fallen sick. Preventive care, healthy living, and being active in your own care is the best way to prevent sickness and enable everyone to flourish, bloom, and prosper!
