Where I practice
I look forward to working with you and your family. Thank you for entrusting your medical care to my team.
Born and raised in the Downtown Los Angeles area, I started at a young age serving families with diverse backgrounds and languages in a community church. I entered medicine to better understand how to care for the whole person. I had the privilege to work with underserved patients and their families during my family medicine residency. I learned the significance and complexity of medical care for our vulnerable older patients during my geriatric medicine fellowship. I also worked in a 24-hour urgent care/observation unit providing medical care along with addressing urgent health illnesses.
About my practice
Using my clinical education and training, I strive to address older members’ complex biological, nutritional, and psychosocial needs in order to maintain their daily functional activity level. My hope is to provide quality medical care based on evidence and current research for geriatric members and their families that align with their personal values and goals. I believe in an open-minded, ongoing, physician-member dialogue regarding end-of-life decisions to optimize members' quality of life now and in the future. I plan to continue lifelong learning to provide updated medical care for my geriatric members and their families.
How I thrive
My faith, family, and friends are invaluable to my ability to care for myself and members. I enjoy traveling, learning about new cultures, and appreciating music of different genres. I value physical activity and make an effort to exercise regularly.
