Welcome to my Web page. I'm glad to have this chance to introduce myself, and I look forward to working with you to care for your health. I was formerly Dr. Emily Spahr.
I grew up on the East Coast in a small town in New England. My mother was a nurse and always encouraged me to be a physician. After graduating from Villanova University with a degree in biology, my family moved to California, and I followed to attend medical school at Touro University in Northern California. After finishing medical school, I joined the United States Navy and was a general medical officer for five years and deployed with both the United States Marine Corps and United States Navy. After completing my service, I started my family medicine residency training at Kaiser Permanente in Orange County and then continued working for Kaiser Permanente after graduation. My husband and I have two young sons who keep us busy and happy.
I work only part-time so that I can also spend some time with my growing family. My goal is to keep members healthy through the prevention of disease and preservation of health. I see all ages (the whole family) in my practice.
My family and I love to be outdoors—hiking, kayaking, boating, etc.
