About me

Hello, and welcome to my Web page.

Biography

I finished my neonatology training at Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical Center, where I stayed on as a faculty clinical instructor. I actively participated in research with an interest in cardiovascular physiology. Later, I joined Harbor–UCLA Medical Center as an assistant clinical professor. I joined Kaiser Permanente in 2010. I decided to become a neonatologist simply because I love my cute little members. To see them grow and improve, and seeing that smile on their parents' faces when they get to take them home is priceless. I’ve been married for almost 20 years and have two boys who keep me busy when I’m not at work.

About my practice

I'm a board-certified pediatrician and neonatologist who works in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) at the Kaiser Permanente Downey Medical Center. I feel very privileged to work at Kaiser Permanente with a group of dedicated physicians and medical staff, and so many adorable little babies and their wonderful parents. We take care of newborn babies who require admission to the NICU, including premature babies. Downey’s NICU is one of the largest NICUs in Kaiser Permanente’s Southern California region. Besides bedside member care, I’m also involved in arranging educational activities for NICU physicians and overseeing NICU quality improvement processes.

How I thrive

I love gardening and spending time with my family. Rain or shine, if I’m home, I find time to play badminton with my boys. I also like to walk with my friends. I also think it’s important to have some "me time"—even if it’s only for five minutes per day—to do something that makes me happy and lets me take care of myself.
