Kaiser Permanente physician

Accepting new patients. Referral may be required.
Welcome to my Web page. I am a general cardiologist at Kaiser Permanente in Downey.
I have been a cardiologist at Kaiser Permanente since 2003. I feel very blessed to have a great family at work and at home.
At Kaiser Permanente, we work together and support each other to care for patients. I work with a team of professionals specializing in cardiac care, including both noninvasive and invasive diagnostic studies. The most important part of taking care of a patient is to understand his or her particular needs and individualize the treatment. I oversee our Heart Failure Transitional Care Program here in Downey. Our team consists of a nurse practitioner, a pharmacist, two nurses, a medical assistant, a social worker, and a home health team, who all work together to provide support for our members and endeavor to help them understand their problems, change their lifestyles, and optimize their medications.
My family is very important to me, and spending time with them helps keep me balanced. I firmly believe in Kaiser Permanente's emphasis on staying healthy in mind, body, and spirit, and I strive to keep balance among work, family, and my other interests outside of medicine.
