Where I practice
Welcome to my Web page. I hope the information here gives you a little insight into who I am, and I look forward to working with you to care for your health.
I studied English and biology at UCLA, completed a master’s degree at Georgetown University in Washington, DC, and studied medicine at Western University in Pomona. I completed my family medicine residency at UC Irvine in 2011. I am board certified in both family medicine and obesity medicine.
About my practice
The opioid epidemic has affected my community and our nation as a whole in striking proportions. Because I want to provide members with the safe care, I support a nonnarcotic and nonopioid treatment plan for anyone experiencing noncancer-related chronic pain. I work at the Kaiser Permanente Huntington Beach Medical Offices. My staff and colleagues strive to always be professional, respectful, courteous, and diligent. We work as a team to provide high-quality, efficient care for our members. To all of our members I stress the importance of living a healthy lifestyle to prevent sickness.
How I thrive
I make great efforts to stay grounded and balanced in my own life through healthy eating and activities. Physical activity is something that is important to me. I try to work out several times a week. I also enjoy international travel and am always looking forward to my next adventure. I have many different interests outside of medicine, and it’s always great finding various connections with other people.
