Where I practice
I’m thrilled to be a part of the Kaiser Permanente team at the Fontana and Ontario medical centers, and I’m happy to have this opportunity to share with you a little information about myself.
I was born in Detroit, Michigan, but have been a California resident for most of my life. I received my undergraduate degree from UC Riverside. From there, I went to medical school and returned to Michigan for my residency, but I knew I would eventually come back to Southern California to practice medicine.
About my practice
I’m an internal medicine specialist focused on, but not limited to, hospital care. This means that I mainly take care of our members when they’re admitted to the hospital. As a result, I often meet people for the first time when they are not necessarily at their best. I hope that my good nature and commitment to their care helps alleviate any concerns, and that I’m able to answer any questions they may have about their time in the hospital. In the hospital, I’m fortunate to work with great physicians, nurses, and other team members. Each day, we collaborate to provide high-quality care for our members. I also occasionally see members in the clinic.
How I thrive
When I’m not at the hospital, I keep myself busy with several hobbies and activities that help me stay healthy and balanced. I cherish my time with my family and friends. I’m also an avid reader, enjoy hiking and working out, and consider myself to be a bit of a computer geek.
