Where I practice
Hello, and welcome to the Kaiser Permanente Woodland Hills Medical Center Ophthalmology Department and retina section. I'm glad to have the opportunity to share some information about myself. It's very important that you feel comfortable with your personal physician, and I hope this page will help you start to get to know me.
I grew up in Southern California. After graduating from UCLA, I moved to Burlington, Vermont for medical school, followed by Yale University for my ophthalmology residency and Boston University for a two-year fellowship in vitreo-retinal surgery and disease. I then joined the faculty at University of Texas Health Sciences and was an assistant professor there until I was offered a position at Kaiser Permanente Woodland Hills Medical Center. I always wanted to return to California and I was very happy to accept this position.
About my practice
I see a variety of vitreo-retinal diseases including diabetic retinopathy, macular degeneration, macular hole, and retinal detachments. I love my work, and feel extremely fortunate to have a very dedicated and exceptional team.
How I thrive
I firmly believe in Kaiser Permanente's philosophy of health in body, mind, and spirit, and try to live it in my life every day. My family life is my major priority. I enjoy camping, hiking, biking, reading, and cooking.
