About me

Thank you for taking the time to learn a little bit about me. As an anesthesiologist, the time I have to develop a relationship with Kaiser Permanente members is often very short but incredibly intense. By reading through my Web page, I hope it helps to give our relationship a solid head start. It's my privilege and honor to take care of you or your loved ones.


I was born in Brooklyn, New York, grew up mostly in St. Louis, Missouri, and moved out to Los Angeles when I was in high school. My father is also an anesthesiologist and currently still practices in the high desert. When I first started medical school, anesthesiology was the one field of medicine that I promised myself I would NOT go into. But, to my surprise, I quickly found myself drawn to it. What can I say? It's in my blood! I completed my residency in anesthesiology at Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical Center, and immediately took at job working here at Kaiser Permanente Los Angeles Medical Center. I’m amazed at all the dedicated physicians, nurses, and ancillary staff at this hospital, and am inspired by the incredible work they do. I’m proud to be a part of this institution and humbled by the miracles I see every day.

About my practice

We often times first meet our members when they’re at their most anxious and vulnerable. Surgery is a very stressful time—not only for members, but also for their family and friends. I’ll strive to alleviate your fear and anxiety by answering any questions you may have regarding your perioperative experience. We’ll then discuss the anesthetic plan in detail. I’m dedicated to your health, safety, and well-being, and I work every day to make your experience the best it can be. Thank you for letting me be a part of your life and trusting me to care for you.

How I thrive

I’m a big advocate for eating healthy and getting regular exercise. I love being active and getting outdoors. I feel that the longer I stay healthy and happy, the longer I can keep you healthy and happy, too!
