Where I practice
Welcome to my Web page. I understand that finding a new doctor can be a complicated process, but I hope that this page provides you with a preview of a doctor who looks forward to meeting you and will care about not only your well-being, but also that of your family members!
I was born and raised in the Los Angeles area. When the time came to decide on training programs, the answer was easy: Los Angeles. I was fortunate enough to attend a medical school where I was surrounded by greatness: professors who had published books used worldwide or made scientific discoveries that had greatly impacted modern medicine. Even though they had all these accomplishments under their belts, what I recall the most was their passion. When I became a physician, I was given the opportunity to teach at a residency training program where I helped sculpt future doctors. I discovered that the time I dedicated to teaching my members about their illnesses was just as valuable. I continue making strides to emulate those who have inspired me and know that my members appreciate the time and energy I direct toward keeping them healthy.
About my practice
Becoming a family physician was one of the most challenging, yet rewarding decisions I ever made. My members entrust me with not only their care, but also the care of their loved ones. As a result, I have had wonderful opportunities to affect the lives of many with the information and life changes that one family member makes. I do believe in prevention and hope that my members appreciate my passion for medicine. I believe that I am not only treating one person, but also making a difference in a family, and possibly in that family's community!
How I thrive
Getting out and experiencing nature is one of the ways that I re-energize from the everyday stresses of being an Angeleno. We are fortunate to have many sunny days to go on escapes to the beaches, mountains, and deserts. As long as I can spend time camping, hiking, and getting out and experiencing nature with my family, I can continue to live well. I urge you to enjoy all the majestic wonder that nature has to offer! (It's never more than a couple of hours away.)
