About Me

Welcome to my Web page. I feel fortunate to be a Kaiser Permanente physician and to be able to work with a talented group of physicians and staff. I also look forward to working with you.


I am of Italian descent and a native of Southern California. I have both a bachelor's and master's degree from UCLA. Through studying physiology, I became interested in medicine and completed my medical training at Jefferson Medical College in Philadelphia. After completing my residency on the East Coast, I decided to move back to Southern California to be with my family.

About my practice

I work with a wonderful group of family practice physicians and specialists. I enjoy taking care of children, as well their parents and grandparents. I also encourage members to be proactive with their health care.

How I thrive

I enjoy spending time with my family. I especially enjoy being outdoors and taking walks with my children, and being actively involved in their lives. My other interests include gardening, photography, and swimming.
