About me

Welcome to my Kaiser Permanente Web page. It is important that you feel comfortable with me as your hospital physician, and I hope this page helps you get to know me. Since 1997, I have been caring for critically ill members in the hospital. I ran our hospitalist department as chief of service, and am the inpatient quality management physician director.

Biography

I was born in Chicago, Illinois, and raised in St. Louis, Missouri. I am the third generation of physicians in my family. In 1993, I graduated from Boston University Medical School from their six-year combined medical program (two years of undergraduate and four years of medical school) with minors in economics and art history. During my last years of medical school at Boston City Hospital, I was also blessed to be able to train at Royal Brompton Hospital in London, Bellevue Hospital in New York, Stanford Hospital, and UCLA Medical Center. In 1996, I completed my internal medicine residency at Harbor-UCLA Medical Center. While working at different medical groups, including Kaiser Permanente, I completed a master’s in public health at UCLA. Because of the great experience I had at Kaiser Permanente, I joined as a full-time physician in 1997 as one of the first hospitalists.

About my practice

Hospital medicine is the discipline concerned with the total medical care of hospitalized members. Doctors whose primary professional focus is hospital medicine are called hospitalists. Hospitalist activities may include member care, teaching, research, and leadership related to hospital care. Hospital medicine, like emergency medicine, is a specialty organized around a site of care (the hospital), rather than an organ (like cardiology), a disease (like oncology), or a member's age (like pediatrics). However, unlike medical specialists in emergency departments or critical care units, most hospitalists help treat patients throughout their hospital stay, often seeing patients in the ER, admitting them to inpatient wards, following them as necessary into the critical care unit, and organizing their care after they are stable to be discharged home.

How I thrive

Keeping balance in my life is very important to me. My family life is a major priority. I enjoy family trips and outings. I participate regularly at my two daughters' school and activities. Hobbies of mine are photography, golf, poker, wine tasting, investing, and exercising regularly at the gym.
