Greetings from the Department of Pediatrics! I am eager to share with you about myself in order to help you select your child’s pediatrician.
As a longtime resident of Los Angeles, I appreciate the richness of our diverse cultures. From kindergarten through medical school, I have benefited from the different backgrounds and perspectives of my educators and my peers. I chose a career in medicine in order to help those in my community. I chose pediatrics to help children stay healthy and thrive, so that they can enjoy the diversity that makes Los Angeles unique.
I believe that communication between a pediatrician and a child’s family is very important to the child’s healthy development. My goal is to promote children’s health through preventive care, which includes routine well-child visits, health education, and guidance on good nutrition and healthy habits.
My work with children and their families motivates me to set a positive example. I engage in physical activity as often as I can by exercising at the gym, hiking California’s nature trails, or simply riding my bike around the neighborhood. I make a conscious effort to eat more healthfully. Most importantly, I spend time with my family.
