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 feel very fortunate to work at Kaiser Permanente because of my wonderful colleagues and our members, and I look forward to working with you to care for your health.
I am a native Southern Californian who grew up as a Kaiser Permanente member. Even when I was a young child, I knew that I wanted to be a doctor. I knew that I wanted to be able to make a real difference in people’s lives, and practicing medicine gives that opportunity. I feel that being able to speak multiple languages makes it easier for me to communicate with my patients.
About my practice
Medicine as a career is a very special opportunity to connect with and help people in a meaningful way, utilizing medical skills and knowledge, but also listening and responding to what people need. Being a physician allows people to share with me their innermost secrets, fears, and hopes; it is a privilege to help people understand what concerns them, translate what they may not grasp, facilitate getting them the appropriate evaluations, and communicate with them and their families. I feel very honored that members have entrusted me with their care and strive to treat them as I would my own family.
How I thrive
I firmly believe in Kaiser Permanente’s philosophy of whole-person health and try to live it in my life every day. I believe that mind, body, and soul should work in sync to have a healthy life.
