Where I practice
Welcome to my Web page. I really enjoy working here. My staff and colleagues are knowledgeable and supportive. I am blessed to be part of a team of wonderful professionals. I feel very honored that patients have entrusted me with their care and strive to treat them as I would my own family.
I was born in Romania and graduated from medical school in my home town of Craiova. I worked as a dermatologist in Romania until 2001, when I moved to the United States. I later on became a proud American and finished my family medicine residency training in Indianapolis, Indiana. I am board certified in family medicine, and I worked as a family physician in Indianapolis before I decided to follow my husband to California. I’ve moved a lot in my life, but I really feel at home at Kaiser Permanente in the Inland Empire.
About my practice
Coming from Romania, where preventative medicine was not a priority and I was, too often, treating patients with advanced diseases, I feel that a healthy lifestyle and preventive care are the best ways to stay healthy, but I’m also here to help you when you are sick. I want to be your partner in health, and it helps me better care for you when you are actively involved in taking care of your health.
How I thrive
My husband, teenage daughter, and I enjoy traveling, cooking, hiking, and listening to classical music together. I also love dancing and Zumba.
