Accepting new patients. Referral may be required.
Welcome to my Web page. It is a privilege to have the opportunity to take care of your health. Allow me to introduce myself so that you may feel more comfortable having me as your endocrinologist.
I had the unique experience of living overseas and attending an international school in Taiwan. I attended Brown University in Providence, Rhode Island and majored in psychology. I feel it is important to understand emotions in order to take care of the entire person medically. I spent almost three years in private practice before joining the Kaiser Permanente team.
As a specialist in endocrinology (the study of hormones and diabetes), I encourage education and understanding of disease to promote individual health. A comprehensive approach is especially critical in the care of diabetes, and I utilize our team of nurses, nutritionists, and educators to implement high-quality diabetes care. I have special interests in thyroid diseases, thyroid cancer, and bone disease. I am certified to perform thyroid ultrasound and fine-needle aspiration biopsies.
Maintaining both physical and emotional health is a priority for me. I enjoy the outdoors by taking walks and I take time out every day to relax with meditation.
