Where I practice
Welcome to my Web page. I'm glad to have the opportunity to present my credentials to you and share other information about myself. It is very important that you feel comfortable with your personal physician, and I hope this page will help you start to get to know me.
I was born in Poland and came here as a young child. I grew up in New York and did my undergraduate and graduate studies on the East Coast. I happily came to San Diego for my residency and have made this my new home, and I joined Kaiser Permanente in 2007.
About my practice
I am a family physician practicing at the Clairemont Mesa Medical Offices. I am one of the physician directors for wellness and physician work-life balance. I also have an active role in the family medicine residency program. I strongly believe in prevention—doing all that we can to prevent you from getting sick in the first place. I feel that healthy living and preventive care are the best ways to stay healthy, but I’m also here to help you when you are sick. I want to be your partner in health, and it helps me better care for you when you are actively involved in taking care of your health. As a family physician, taking care of everyone in the family is important to me. I enjoy seeing all ages and keeping members in good health at all stages of life. My practice is always open to children under age ten and prenatal members.
How I thrive
In my free time I enjoy figure skating, hiking, and reading.
