Kaiser Permanente physician
My gender: Female
Accepting new patients.
Hello, and welcome to my Web page! I’m delighted to offer this page as an extension of my practice. I’m proud to be a part of a diverse and outstanding group of health care providers here at Kaiser Permanente, and I’m genuinely excited about participating in your child's wellness.
I’ve always had a keen interest in human science and medicine. From an early age, I realized I wanted to be a part of a process that helps people feel better and live healthier lives. During medical school, I was drawn to the unpretentious nature of children and found pediatrics to be fun and rewarding. I joined Kaiser Permanente after completing my residency at White Memorial Medical Center, where I served as chief resident. I’m married and have four wonderful boys who make life exciting and different every day! When I find the time, I enjoy reading and going to the movies.
Practicing medicine gives me a very special opportunity to connect with and help people in a meaningful way by using medical skills and knowledge, and also by listening and responding to what they need. I always strive to understand their concerns, explain what they may not grasp, get them the appropriate evaluations, and communicate with them and their families. My main goal is to empower my members and their families to take care of themselves in spite of the ever-changing challenges of raising a family in San Diego. I encourage parents to be very involved in their children's lives. It’s an honor to be your child's pediatrician. For your appointments, please remember to bring your immunization records and to arrive on time.
My family life is very important to me and Kaiser Permanente affords me the opportunity to balance my professional life with my family life. My boys love all sports and most weekends we can be found at a baseball, soccer, basketball, or football game. My husband, four sons, and I enjoy family trips to different countries and all theme and resort parks!
