Where I practice
Thank you for visiting my Web page. Here I hope to provide you with some information about myself and my practice at Kaiser Permanente.
I am a hospital-based physician specializing in internal medicine. In other words, I care for adult members who have been admitted to the hospital. I have been in practice close to 10 years. I have lived most of my life in California, in different parts of the state. I enjoy the outdoors and believe in achieving a balance among work, family, and health.
About my practice
As an internal medicine physician, my approach is not only to treat the acute problem that has compromised an individual's health, but also to adopt a comprehensive health assessment and identify ways to manage and even prevent chronic conditions such as diabetes, hypertension, and cardiovascular disease, to name a few. By communicating effectively with patients and mobilizing all the resources that are available to us, my physician colleagues and I ensure that each patient gets individualized, high-quality care. I strive to take meticulous care of the patients we serve.
How I thrive
I live well by exercising every day (doing cardiovascular and resistance training), minimizing unnecessary stress, having a positive attitude, eating healthfully, and enjoying time with friends and family. I also follow my own advice regarding preventive care! I check my cholesterol and blood pressure, and I ask my own personal Kaiser Permanente physician about things I can do to maintain my health.
