Kaiser Permanente physician
My gender: Female
Accepting new patients.
Hello, and welcome to my Web page. I hope this will give you some useful information about my interests and credentials. I look forward to meeting and working with you and your family in the near future. I am a general pediatrician and see children from birth until their 18th birthday. I've been with Kaiser for over 10 years.
Although I wasn't born in Los Angeles, I feel like a native Angeleno. I really enjoy practicing in the community in which I live. I've always wanted to work with children, so pediatrics seemed to be the natural choice for me when I decided to become a doctor. I have no regrets so far. When not in the office, my life is all about family, cooking (mostly baking), and traveling.
I really try to focus on preventive medicine and treating the whole child. I am not the leader in your child's health but a partner, and I try to involve the family whenever possible.
Having children of my own and caring for your children encourages me to set the best example for them. I think being around children all day helps to keep me young at heart. I exercise several times per week by running or taking a dance or Pilates classes. I keep my diet healthy by avoiding sugar.
