Kaiser Permanente physician
My gender: Female
Not accepting new patients. Please call 1-888-956-1616.
Welcome to my Web page. I am happy to have this chance to introduce my practice and myself. I enjoy working with my great colleagues and our members at Kaiser Permanente, and I look forward to working with you, too.
I was born in Hawaii, but have lived in Southern California most of my life. While I was in medical school, both of my parents became ill with cancer and passed away. Taking care of them gave me an understanding of what it feels like to be a patient with a serious illness. I have never forgotten those feelings, and I try to treat each member the way I would like my own family to be treated.
I have practiced family medicine for many years and really enjoy teaching, advising, and working together with members to maximize their health. I have a great health care team who work with me to provide high-quality care, and we all share the belief that our work is a great privilege and responsibility.
I try to practice what I preach, take care of myself, eat sensibly, exercise regularly, and relax and renew. I ran my first half marathon in 2007, and I enjoy movies, cooking, and travel. Most importantly, I am blessed with family and friends who keep me smiling.
