About me

Hello, and welcome to my Web page! I’ve worked at the Kaiser Permanente Fontana Medical Center in the Department of Physical Medicine since 2010.

Biography

I’ve always enjoyed science, but I love sports. I chose a career in physical medicine and rehabilitation because it offered the opportunity to mix both of my passions—science and helping people—and use the knowledge and experience I have to help others understand and recuperate from their conditions. The human body has an amazing ability to heal and recover, but sometimes it needs guidance on what to do and not do.

About my practice

I’ve been involved in programs that help treat members with varying types of pain and injuries, and recognize that not all pain can be treated the same. My main goal as a physical medicine doctor is to help members regain as much function as possible as they recover from an injury or painful, disabling condition. There are many different aspects as to how pain can disrupt life, but with proper guidance and treatment, I hope to get members back on track as soon as possible. My board-certification in sports medicine further backs my beliefs that exercise is medicine. My role as a doctor is to help members understand that the healthiest treatment option includes maintaining an active lifestyle while returning to normal activities and work as soon as possible. I focus specifically on how the pain or injury is affecting the different realms of a member’s life, and develop a treatment plan with the member that targets optimal rehabilitation with minimal use of medications.

How I thrive

I find balance in life by giving back. I volunteer at a local high school to provide sideline medical coverage at their sporting events. For some students, having access to a physician is a financial burden on their family, and therefore, they might not be able to obtain basic medical advice and guidance on how to recuperate from an injury. I also hope that the time I spend with the students can be a source of inspiration to pursue a career in healthcare, because to me it has been extremely rewarding.
