Where I practice
Hello, and welcome to my Web page. I am originally from Romania. My first name, Mihai, means Michael. I am a graduate of the Institute of Medicine and Pharmacy in Bucharest, Romania, and I am certified by the Romanian Board of Pediatrics.
I have been living in the United States since 1984. I completed my internship and residency at King Drew Medical Center in Los Angeles (which used to be affiliated with UCLA). I was certified by the American Board of Psychiatry and Neurology in 1993, and I have been working for Kaiser Permanente since 1990. I currently practice in the West Covina Medical Offices. I wanted to be a doctor since I was five years old because one of my grandfathers was a doctor. I am very happy doing what I am doing now—helping my fellow human beings.
About my practice
I have been a Kaiser Permanente member since 1986, when I started my residency in Psychiatry. Because of my experience as a member, I decided I wanted to work for Kaiser Permanente. We have a wonderful team in West Covina. We really are like a family; we cooperate with each other very well, and I am really happy where I work.
How I thrive
An old Latin proverb says “Mens sana in corpore sano," which means “A healthy mind in a healthy body.” To this I would add: and a healthy spirit/soul. I take care of my body by exercising daily by jogging, walking, hiking, or playing with my dog, boxing or swimming. I like to travel, of which I do a lot, all over the world. I like to read about history, art, travel, philosophy, and religion. I get strong support from my family, with whom I spent lots of quality time. Being part of a religious community is also very important to me.
