Accepting new patients. Referral may be required.
Welcome to my Web page. I am pleased to share with you a few highlights of my personal and professional background.
I was born and raised in Toronto, Canada, and attended medical school at the University of Toronto. After completing residency training in family medicine, I relocated to San Diego to train in psychiatry at UC San Diego, with additional fellowship training in geriatric psychiatry. Prior to joining Kaiser Permanente, I worked in a variety of hospital and community practice settings both in Canada and here in San Diego. I have particular expertise in psychological and emotional conditions that are associated with medical illness and aging, but I enjoy working with adults throughout the lifespan. Over the course of my career, I have been actively involved in education of medical trainees, physicians, and allied health professionals in both university and community settings.
My approach to health is holistic, and I emphasize education in my practice. My aim is to help you become an expert regarding your own health.
I try to practice the same healthy lifestyle that I prescribe to members. My family is my greatest passion, especially laughing together and discovering beautiful places. I enjoy cooking and eating healthy food and exercising in nature.
