Kaiser Permanente physician
My gender: Female
Accepting new patients. Referral may be required.
Welcome to my Web page. I'm happy to have this chance to introduce myself to you and tell you about my practice. I feel very fortunate to work at Kaiser Permanente because of my wonderful colleagues and patients, and look forward to working with you to care for your health.
I was born and raised in Orange County, and I attended UC Irvine for my undergraduate studies. I decided to broaden my horizons, so I moved to Boston for my medical training. I graduated from Harvard Medical School and completed the Harvard Combined Orthopedic Surgery Residency training program. I spent an additional year completing the Harvard Medical School/Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center Upper Extremity Fellowship for subspecialty training in the area of hand surgery. But after 10 New England winters, I couldn't wait to return to lovely Southern California.
As an orthopedist, I specialize in hand surgery. I enjoy evaluating hand patients of all ages—my youngest patients have been hours old and my oldest patients have been in their 90s. My practice covers a wide range of possible hand and wrist problems, including congenital hand conditions, trigger finger, tendonitis, masses, carpal tunnel and other nerve entrapment issues, fractures, tendon and nerve injuries, and arthritis.
Keeping balance in my life is very important to me. I enjoy spending time with my two children. I keep healthy by going to the gym and also doing Pilates. I make time for my hobbies, which include photography, cooking, and finding wines to pair with my gourmet creations. I also enjoy traveling. The places I've traveled in include Mexico, Costa Rica, Ireland, France, Spain, Italy, and Russia.
