Welcome to my Web page. I'm happy to have this chance to introduce myself to you and tell you about my practice. I feel very fortunate to work at Kaiser Permanente because of my wonderful colleagues and patients, and I look forward to working with you to care for your health.
I am from San Diego. I was actually raised right here in La Mesa where I now practice and am very happy to serve the community that provided me with so much during my childhood. I chose to become a physician because of my interest in human physiology and passion for promoting health and caring for patients.
My practice takes a team approach to caring for our members. Our nurses, medical assistants, pharmacy, and receptionist work together to make a thorough review of your history and help make sure you are looked after in a compassionate and timely manner. I encourage all of my patients to take advantage of the many online resources for members at Kaiser Permanente.org, including being able to email my office and review most lab results. This allows for better communication and makes you a part of the health care team.
I have a special interest in preventive medicine, which includes, of course, healthy eating and regular exercise. I try to stay healthy by eating fish, chicken, fruits, and vegetables. I enjoy jogging and do so about three times per week.
