Where I practice
Hello, and welcome to my Web page. I am very proud to work at the Kaiser Permanente Baldwin Park Medical Center because we have what I feel is a state-of-the-art facility, and the staff is truly top-notch. This job allows me time for my family and personal life, which translates into a fresh and healthy outlook toward work and life in general.
I was born and raised in Southern California. I haven't lived much outside of a 40-mile radius . When I was very young, my mom began to encourage me to become a physician because I was always concerned with others' well-being and was naturally drawn to science and math. My outside interests include rock climbing, hiking, and fitness. I have also tried just about every sport imaginable.
About my practice
Our group works very well as a team and we each understand our roles, even though they change somewhat on a daily basis. The group is interested in academic teachings and we keep one another up to date on the latest studies and technology. I believe that we are a very hardworking group that strives to provide the highest level of care. Although we work hard, we are all very family oriented and have different hobbies as well.
How I thrive
Recently I began backpacking which has changed my life for the better. It has given me the opportunity to see so many things that others will never get to experience. The culmination was when I finished the John Muir Trail in September 2014. I also enjoy bouldering (rock climbing), and I like to camp, work out, spend time with friends and family, and challenge myself to be a better person each day. Additionally, I try to eat well and relax when necessary.
