Where I practice
Hello, and welcome to my Web page! I am happy to have this chance to introduce myself to you. I am a general pediatrician at the Kaiser Permanente Cerritos Medical Offices. I also work at the Pediatric Extended Hours Clinic.
I was born and raised in Southern California. I attended medical school at Western University of Health Sciences, and went on to do my pediatric residency training at University of California San Diego. I have always had a passion for working with kids and always knew that being a pediatrician was what I was meant to do.
About my practice
I practice general pediatrics in the office setting and see children from birth to 18 years old. I believe preventive care is very important and will always encourage regular checkups, nutrition, exercise, and immunizations to keep children healthy. What excites me most about what I do is being able to watch children grow and thrive, and building relationships with families. As your child's pediatrician, I become your partner. Together, we do the very best to take care of your children as they grow.
How I thrive
I love spending quality time with my family and getting hugs from my two daughters. I exercise regularly by going for walks, bike riding, or attending Zumba or U Jam fitness classes. I enjoy my roles as a physician, a mom, a wife, and a member of my church, and love the balance I achieve with all these things.
