Where I practice
Hello, and welcome to my Web page. I am an emergency medicine physician, and work at the Kaiser Permanente Anaheim and Irvine Medical Centers. I feel honored to work with my colleagues on the Kaiser Permanente team to care for our Orange County members and community.
I grew up in Irvine, and have been fortunate enough to have lived in Southern California all of my life. I suffered a great personal loss very early in my life which taught me how precious time is with our family and loved ones. This experience, along with my love for biology and science, drove me at a very early age to want to become a physician. I feel blessed to be able to go to work every day knowing that I can help my community stay healthy so that they are able to accomplish their dreams and spend time with their loved ones.
About my practice
I work in the Emergency Department. Given the nature of my work place, team work and effective communication are critically important. I work closely with my physician colleagues, nurses, and ancillary staff to be able to deliver efficient, high-quality, and compassionate care to our patients in their times of need.
How I thrive
Fitness is very important to me. I make it a point to eat healthy, maintain good sleep hygiene, and work out regularly to stay healthy and balanced. I love travel, the outdoors, and snowboarding. Most importantly, I value being able to spend time with my family and friends.
