Hello! Welcome to my Web page.
I chose to become an emergency medicine physician at the age of 13, after my father was involved in a very serious car accident. He was hit by a drunk driver and sustained major head injuries. For six weeks he was in a coma, and we spent most of my eighth-grade year visiting the intensive care unit and then various hospital and rehabilitation facilities. That experience changed our whole family forever. I work in Kaiser Permanente's Emergency Departments in Irvine and Anaheim. I take great pride in caring for my patients and their families, and one of my goals is to help alleviate the stress of any emergency visit you have.
I have been with Kaiser Permanente since 2002 and a physician with our organization since 2005. I transferred here not long ago from Kaiser Permanente in Fontana. I try to treat all of my patients in the Emergency Department as I would want my family members to be treated. While we are often rushed in the Emergency Department, I try to spend as much time as possible explaining tests, procedures, results, and expected outcomes to my patients and their families. I want my patients to feel that their questions have been answered prior to their admission to the hospital or discharge home. I think communication is a very important part of my job.
I enjoy spending time with my boys, my husband, and my friends and family. I enjoy scuba diving, reading, and traveling.
