About me

"Change starts with you, but it doesn't start until you do."—Tom Ziglar. I believe we all can make our lives better, but nothing changes (for better or worse) till we do. We all have the ability to elevate our lives and to thrive.

Biography

By nature, I like to help others. I nurture positivity. I also do not like to sit passively, when I can take action. As a child, I felt frustrated and helpless by my father's Parkinson's disease. I became a physician to empower my abilities to help and make a difference. I thrive in helping my patients live and see better. In fact, I also volunteer in medical missions, providing eye care services to people in the South Pacific and Tibet. I am grateful that I am able to make a difference with my life.

About my practice

I am comprehensive ophthalmologist, in general, but specifically a glaucoma specialist. In addition to providing a full range of eye care services, I enjoy the relationships and continuity of care to my glaucoma patients. Glaucoma is like the "internal medicine" of ophthalmology. A doctor-patient relationship is just that: a long-term communication whereby two individuals work together to achieve a common goal. And, in this case, good health and vision. I am fortunate to be able to work with a great team of professionals: doctors, optometrists, nurses, and technicians. I am proud that Kaiser Permanente strives to be the best in providing affordable, quality health care. And, having access to the top technologies to keep people healthy is terrific.

How I thrive

I get asked what can be done to keep eyes healthy. I tell them that healthy living keeps every part of them healthy, eyes included. In a busy life, it's hard to find time to exercise, eat right, drink plenty of water, and rest. But I personally constantly struggle and work towards this goal. I also try not to sweat the small things. Having a healthy attitude and optimistic perspective really helps me personally, as well as helps me help others.
