Where I practice
Welcome to my Web page! I'm happy to have this chance to tell you about my practice and myself. Kaiser Permanente is a great place to work because of my wonderful colleagues and the members I see. I look forward to working with you as well.
I’m a Southern California native. Even when I was a young child, I knew I wanted to be a physician. This led me to attend Johns Hopkins University for my premedical training. After college, I attended medical school at The University of Vermont with the intention of becoming a family physician. My plans changed, however, when my grandfather developed severe congestive heart failure. He was my inspiration to become a cardiologist. I was fortunate enough to serve my internship and residency at the Cleveland Clinic, where I was asked to stay on for an extra year as chief resident. I returned home to Southern California after that and completed a cardiology fellowship at Harbor-UCLA Medical Center, where I also had the honor of serving as chief fellow. Next, I completed a fellowship in electrophysiology at Kaiser Permanente Los Angeles Medical Center. Ever since then, I’ve been a part of the Kaiser Permanente family.
About my practice
Electrophysiology is a rewarding specialty. My colleagues and I can help patients with arrhythmias and congestive heart failure.
How I thrive
I firmly believe in Kaiser Permanente's philosophy of health in body, mind, and spirit, and I try to emulate it in my own life every day. My family life is my one of my major priorities. I enjoy cooking and going to local farmers’ markets. We enjoy our time together and with our dog and goldfish.
