Kaiser Permanente physician
My gender: Female

Welcome to my Web page. I am happy to have this chance to introduce myself to you and tell you about my practice. I feel very fortunate to work at Kaiser Permanente, and I look forward to helping you if you ever need my care.
I am originally from the Philippines and was blessed to grow up mostly in Southern California. I enjoy the warm weather and spending time with family and friends. I especially love the ocean and beach, trying out many different restaurants, family-friendly places like Disneyland/Legoland/etc., and just reading and relaxing out in the sun (with SPF45 sunblock of course!).
I did my medical school training at UCLA, internship at Harbor UCLA, and anesthesia/pain management residency/fellowship at UC San Francisco. I then did private and academic practice in the South Bay and Orange County for a while. I joined Kaiser Permanente in 2001. I am very honored to work with such a great team here the South Bay Medical Center. I especially enjoy meeting patients, hearing their stories, and learning about their lives and what I can do to help assist them.
Half of my time is spent providing anesthesia in the operating rooms and the other half is spent providing pain management in the Parkview Medical Office Building. I enjoy the balance of being able to work in both types of practice. I also stay very active doing anesthesia on call in the hospital for all breathing/airway-obstruction emergencies, surgical emergencies, and obstetric/maternal child deliveries. My family life has been my major priority over the past 10 years. I enjoy family outings to my children’s school activities and sports events. I also have a large extended family here in the South Bay, so a lot of my free time is learning how to cook quick and easy meals for them, spending time with family, and trying to get my stretching/yoga/exercise whenever possible.
