Kaiser Permanente physician
My gender: Female
Accepting new patients.
Hello and welcome to my Web page! If you are new to Kaiser Permanente, or looking for a new primary care physician, please review my information and consider scheduling an appointment so we can meet!
I was born and raised in Los Angeles. I had my undergraduate training in San Diego, and then got to experience the East Coast for a bit during my medical training. I returned to Los Angeles for my residency training in Internal Medicine at Olive View-UCLA Medical Center, and spent an extra year as a chief resident. I had opportunities to rotate through Kaiser Permanente facilities during medical school and residency, and fell in love with the overall approach to health care. I am happy to be spending my medical career as part of a team that makes patient health the main priority.
As your physician, I want to be your health advocate, working with you to help you be the healthiest you can be. I put a lot of emphasis on preventive care by assisting my patients in establishing and maintaining a healthy way of living, in order to possibly decrease the need for medications and complications from preventable and manageable diseases.
I enjoy eating healthy and experimenting with new recipes (but I still allow myself to indulge in small doses). To make exercising more fun, I try to arrange activities with friends, such as hiking and spinning classes in groups. I keep friends and family very close to maintain a healthy social support around me.
