Where I practice
Welcome to my Web page. I am 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, and I look forward to working with you to care for your health.
I was born in Cairo, Egypt, the cradle of ancient civilization. I am of Armenian descent, and I’m fluent in Armenian, Arabic, English, and French. I completed my undergraduate studies as well as medical school in Cairo. I then decided to come to the Unites States to join my parents and brother and pursue my medical career in Southern California. After six years of residency and fellowship at USC Medical Center, I joined Kaiser Permanente in 2000, and I’ve been here since. I’m a sports fanatic, but most of all love basketball and soccer. I also like biking, fishing, skiing, and gardening.
About my practice
As a physician who works in critical care, I’ve found that my job presents me with a unique opportunity to care for people at a very vulnerable time in their lives. I provide for their care by using my medical skills and training but also by listening to them and responding to what they need. I’m deeply honored that I’ve been entrusted with my patients’ care, and I strive to treat every one of them no differently than I would anyone in my family.
How I thrive
I firmly believe in Kaiser Permanente’s philosophy of being healthy in every way, and I try to live that in my life every day. Keeping balance in my personal and professional life is very important to my family and me. A healthy life is structured upon preventive practices, including regular exercise, moderation in diet, and avoidance of destructive habits.
