Kaiser Permanente physician
My gender: Female
Accepting new patients. Referral may be required.
Welcome to my Web page. I'm happy to have this chance to introduce myself to you and tell you about my work as a physician at Kaiser Permanente. I am a cardiologist and have practiced for more than 15 years at the Downey Medical Center. I feel fortunate to be able to work at Kaiser Permanente as a clinician and strive to make our organization one of the best health care systems in the nation.
I come from a large family and now have a growing family of my own. I have lived in Southern California for more than 30 years. I chose to go into medicine so that I could make a real difference in people's lives. I went to UC Irvine for medical school and also did my residency and cardiology fellowship there.
I feel that healthy living and preventive care are the best ways to stay healthy. I consider myself to be your partner in your medical care, and it helps me when you are actively involved in your care. Medicine provides a special opportunity to connect and help people in a meaningful way, utilizing medical skills and knowledge, but also listening and responding to what patients need. I feel honored that patients have entrusted me with their care and I treat them as I would my own family, giving them the best care that I am capable of.
I enjoy spending time with my family. I am involved with other mothers in my community. We share our experiences with the goal of being better people and better parents. I am currently working to create a charity organization that involves young children. I believe that it's an important part of every parent's responsibility to teach our children at a young age to care for the community and the underprivileged. I love to travel with my family. I like to read books. I also enjoy spending time with people from outside the field of medicine to provide some balance in my life.
