Where I practice
Welcome to my Web page! I'm happy to have this chance to tell you about myself, and about my work. I’m an obstetrician and gynecologist, and I've been with Kaiser Permanente since 2001. I am the assistant physician director of women and children services for the Southern California Permanente Medical Group in Orange County. I feel fortunate to be at Kaiser Permanente both as a clinician and as an administrator, and I strive always to provide our members with high-quality care.
I’m originally from the East Coast, where I was educated and trained. I have also had the opportunity to practice academic medicine as an attending physician at both the University of Miami and the University of Arizona. These were great places, but Kaiser Permanente in sunny Southern California is my favorite!
About my practice
I feel that healthy living 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. I feel very honored that members have entrusted me with their care and I strive to treat them as I would my own family.
How I thrive
Keeping balance in my life is very important to me, along with remembering what's really important in life. I believe that diet, exercise, and healthy living are extremely important. I try to exercise each day, but my favorite form of exercise is trying to keep up with my twins!
