Where I practice
Welcome to my Web page. I'm happy to have this chance to introduce myself to you and tell you about my practice.
I grew up in Southern California, with a few years in Washington, D.C. for my medical training. I live near the Kaiser Permanente Woodland Hills Medical Center, so you might run into me and my family at the park, school, or store. I enjoy the "small town" aspect of running into patients and families outside the office.
About my practice
I joined the staff at Woodland Hills Medical Center in 1989 and am glad to be part of a group that strives to give you the best care possible and the best experience in the process. One side of my practice is obstetrics. Delivering babies was the wonderful privilege that brought me into the specialty. Sharing that precious time during which you add a new member to your family is its own reward. My other side is gynecology with a special emphasis on minimally invasive surgery, sometimes abbreviated as MIS. This is where we can do some amazing things using telescopes and tiny incisions. "Find a job you love, and you'll never have to go to work." It may sound corny, but I look forward to arriving at the office to do what I do. If you can catch me without a smile, let me know. I truly enjoy what I do and the daily interactions with patients and their families, and that keeps me happy. I look forward to caring for you and hope to live up to your expectations.
