About Me

Welcome to the Department of Pediatrics at Kaiser Permanente Pasadena Medical Offices.

Biography

I did my pediatric medical training at Children's Hospital Los Angeles. I have worked at Kaiser Permanente Pasadena Medical Offices and Kaiser Permanente Los Angeles Medical Center since 1988. I was president of the medical staff at the Los Angeles Medical Center in 2000.

About my practice

We see patients Monday through Fridays. There is pediatric coverage on most Saturday mornings, except for holiday weekends and a few weekends set aside for conferences. Pediatric urgent care services are available daily at the Los Angeles Medical Center at 4700 Sunset Blvd., and we have an urgent care clinic on the first floor of the office building. I see newborns to teens in my practice. Also, I head the pediatric asthma clinic, which provides individual and family asthma education. We are a team of professionals from different departments that evaluates the patients and develops a written asthma care management plan for each of them.

How I thrive

Taking care of the mind and the body makes for a healthier person. Some daily exercise and good nutrition helps keep children and their parents healthy.
