Kaiser Permanente physician
My gender: Female
Accepting new patients. Referral may be required.
Welcome to my Web page! I am happy to have this chance to introduce myself and tell you about my practice as a neurologist with special interest and training in child neurology. I look forward to working with you and your family.
I am a native Southern Californian who grew up as a Kaiser Permanente member. I was born at Kaiser Permanente Fontana Medical Center. My parents were Kaiser Permanente physicians, and I even married a Kaiser Permanente physician. My children were born at Kaiser Permanente too! Even when I was a young child, I knew that I wanted to be a physician, in part because of the compassionate care I saw my parents provide throughout their careers. I knew that I wanted to be able to make a real difference in people’s lives, and practicing medicine gives me that opportunity.
Medicine as a career gives me the opportunity to connect with and help people in meaningful ways, utilizing medical skills and knowledge but also listening and responding to what patients need. Communication with my patients and their families is an important part of my practice. I feel honored that patients have entrusted me with their care, and do my best to treat them as I would want my own family to be treated. I especially enjoy working with children and their families.
I firmly believe in Kaiser Permanente's emphasis on the health of the whole person, and I try to apply this philosophy to my own life. My family life is my highest priority outside of work. I try to find regular time to exercise and believe it is good to sweat daily (or at least several time per week) and practice yoga. I enjoy traveling with my family. We love to ski and the kids started early and always wear helmets! I look forward to salsa dancing with my Cuban husband when we find the time.
