About Me

Thank you for visiting my Web page. I am one member of the outstanding Kaiser Permanente ob-gyn team in Kern County. We strive to provide the best and most up-to-date care available.


I’m originally from New York City and made Bakersfield my home in 2002. Becoming a physician was a childhood dream that became possible only with the love and support of my family. I became interested in women’s health care during medical school and chose to practice general ob-gyn. Much of my medical training occurred in Albany, New York. I graduated from Albany Medical School and later completed my ob-gyn residency at Albany Medical Center.

About my practice

I’m part of a group practice that consists of a growing number of general ob-gyn physicians. We enjoy the support of our colleagues whose subspecialties include perinatology, gynecology oncology, and reproductive endocrinology. I have a special interest in minimally invasive surgery, including laparoscopy and hysteroscopy. I practice the full range of obstetrics and gynecology. I encourage all of my patients to maintain their healthy habits.

How I thrive

Laughter... as much as possible.
