Where I practice
It is a pleasure to have the opportunity to describe my practice to you and share some information about myself. It is very important that you feel comfortable with and have information about your children's physician. I hope this page facilitates your choice of a pediatrician.
I knew that I wanted to be a pediatrician from the time I was 12 years old. Since I was a young girl, I was passionate about the care of children, science, and higher education. I completed medical school and residency in Southern California, where my siblings and their families have been residing since the 1970s. Now my home with my family is in this region. I enjoy spending time with my four sons, reading, cooking, and traveling.
About my practice
I believe in healthy living and preventive care, and I take time to promote them in my practice. In taking care of my sick members, I practice evidence-based medicine (demonstrated to be effective by the latest available research) customized to the needs of each child. I make sure that my members and their families are treated the way I would like my family members to be treated. I try to help them understand the member’s condition and how the chosen treatment works. Being a Kaiser Permanente physician allows me to best apply my professional philosophy.
How I thrive
I eat fruits and vegetables, share laughs with my family and friends, get lots of housework done when I do not get to exercise, and spend quality time with my husband and kids.
