About me

Shalom, salaam, hola, bonjour, and hello! Welcome to my Web page. I’m happy that this page allows me to introduce myself and tell you about my practice. I enjoy working at Kaiser Permanente among terrific colleagues and patients, and I look forward to working with you to care for your health.

Biography

I am one of the “locals,” born and bred in Southern California. Along with swimming and surfing, I spent much of my youth involved with social action and environmental concerns. As an adult, I now have expanded my interests to include hiking, jogging, marathons, and triathlons. Traveling around the world has served to increase my involvement and concern for our world. I have learned that there is so much more to understanding culture than simply tolerance—it is a matter of acceptance and appreciation. Academically, I started in the UC system but broadened my perspective by doing primary research in Ohio before attending medical school in Washington, D.C. I worked for the National Health Service Corps in southern Louisiana and was in private practice before my start at the Kaiser Permanente Fontana Medical Center.

About my practice

My practice centers on patients receiving skilled care, those in nursing homes, and those in hospice. It is my pleasure to serve a population too often ignored during a difficult (possibly, the most difficult) stage of their lives. My academic pursuits have led me to facilitate the beginning of a geriatric fellowship, a board-certified subspecialty that welcomes both internal medicine and family medicine residency graduates who have an interest in developing a keener appreciation and skill set in elder care.

How I thrive

For me, living a balanced, healthy life means taking the opportunity to appreciate our world’s many cultures, especially when working with patients of different backgrounds. During my spare time I can be found exercising, creating caricatures for my family and friends, or attending a musical event, play, or cultural event within the Southern California area. And then there is the voluntary work that I do on behalf of multiple institutions and charities—this is part of participating in our community.
