Where I practice
Welcome to my Web page. I strive to make a special connection with each member I meet, along with their families. I hope to see you in my practice soon.
I was born in New York and raised in northern New Jersey. The four seasons and the city life of the Northeast enriched my upbringing, but the year-round sun made my move to California easy. My desire to be a physician was inspired at a young age by my father, who is also a pediatrician, and my biggest role model. He always came home with a genuine smile on his face because his patients kept him rejuvenated and motivated. I fell in love with his career. My passion increased during medical school when I began treating kids. Their innocence, imagination, and resilience motivate me to be the best doctor for them. They also give me a daily reminder of life's simple pleasures. Now that I have become a mother myself, my love for my job has grown immensely and my taught me all the secrets that medical school couldn’t.
About my practice
Preventive care, parental education, and guidance towards a healthy lifestyle for the family as a whole are the three major ways I try to keep kids healthy, physically and mentally. When kids are sick, I strive to provide high-quality care while involving the parents in all decision making.
How I thrive
I live well by keeping my own balance between work, family, and life. My philosophy is a balanced mind makes a strong body, and that ensures a healthy lifestyle. I love taking advantage of the outdoors by going hiking, biking, and skiing. I love to dance, laugh, and spend time with my family.
