Welcome to my Web page. I am happy that this page gives me a way to introduce myself and tell you about my practice. I feel very fortunate to work at Kaiser Permanente, and I look forward to working with you to care for your health.
I grew up in the Bronx and migrated through Connecticut and Pennsylvania to California. Early in my career, I conducted research in childhood learning disorders, neuropharmacology, and the immunologic basis of rheumatic diseases.
About my practice
Our Rheumatology Division strives to deliver the highest quality compassionate care based on the most current medical research and evidence. We work closely with primary care physicians and other specialists in the management of our members.
How I thrive
My interests outside of the office include hiking, jazz, contemporary art, and community service. My creative outlets are photography and acrylic painting. Meditation, music, sports, and reading soothe my soul, while crossword puzzles, scrabble, travel and my patients keep my brain active.
