Hello, and welcome to my Web page. I practice in Orange County and am glad to have this Web page as a venue for providing information to my members.
I am a native Californian and have been living in Orange County since 1990. I wanted to be a doctor since childhood and was lucky to be not only the first physician in my family but also the first college graduate. I chose to join Kaiser Permanente as an Ob/Gyn when I moved to Orange County. In my residency training, I rotated through the Kaiser Permanente Woodland Hills and West Los Angeles Medical Centers. The environment at Kaiser Permanente, where I am able to make decisions about what is best for my members, matches my philosophy about the role of the physician-patient relationship in medical care.
As an Ob/Gyn, I work in an office building with a small group of Ob/Gyn providers that includes eight physicians, one registered nurse practitioner, and one certified nurse-midwife. I believe strongly in preventive health care and the importance of self-care in promoting total wellness.
My greatest challenge is finding the time and energy to balance the demands of my practice and family with my own need for rejuvenation of body and spirit. I find my recreation in gardening, riding and spoiling my horse, reading, and cooking for myself and my family.
