Where I practice
Hello, and welcome to my Web page. I am happy to have this chance to introduce myself to you and tell you about my work. I know it is very important that you feel comfortable with me as your physician, and I hope the information here will be helpful for you.
I grew up in California and completed all of my medical training here in our beautiful state. I attended Loma Linda University Medical School for my medical degree, Stanford University for my residency in physical medicine and rehabilitation, and UC San Francisco for my fellowship in pain management. I am board certified in both physical medicine/rehabilitation and in pain management. I started my post-training career at UC San Francisco as a faculty member and clinical professor, working and teaching in an academic setting prior to continuing my career here at Kaiser Permanente. Every day, I strive to provide our members with high-quality medical care.
About my practice
My practice is in physical medicine and pain management. I specialize in musculoskeletal, spine, and chronic pain conditions. Treatments for these conditions usually involve a combination of therapies which can include medications, injections for pain relief, alternative therapies, physical therapy, proper exercise and overall healthy living in order to promote function, help manage pain effectively and overall improve quality of life.
How I thrive
Keeping my life in balance keeps me happy and well.
