Welcome to my Web page. I know that finding the right physician for your children can be stressful, so I’m glad to have the chance to tell you a little bit about myself to help you understand who I am and how I practice.
I am a native Californian, born and raised in Southern California. I traveled up to the Bay Area for my undergraduate and public health studies and then all the way down to San Diego for medical school before coming right back home to Los Angeles to practice medicine. I have been interested in the lungs ever since learning about them in medical school. I also enjoy working with children and their families, so becoming a pediatric pulmonologist seemed like the natural step for me to take.
I work with a team that includes a nurse coordinator, respiratory care practitioner, dietitian, and social worker, so that we can provide well-rounded care for our members. I see members from birth to 18 years old who have respiratory problems. I also practice pediatric sleep medicine and see children with chronic snoring or other sleep-related symptoms.
I thrive by keeping a positive outlook on life and having a faith that guides me. I enjoy running and cycling regularly and try to keep moving throughout the day. Spending time with my family always helps me to recharge and refocus my life.
