Where I practice
I'm glad to have the opportunity to present my credentials to you and share other information about myself. It's very important that you feel comfortable with your personal physician, and I hope this page will help you start to get to know me. I am a family medicine physician and have been in practice for more than 15 years in various health care settings. I feel fortunate to be able to work at Kaiser Permanente.
I consider it a privilege to be working as a physician. By the age of 7, I had decided that this was the field that I wanted to be in. I was greatly influenced by my parents who were involved in missionary work and encouraged me in my pursuit. My family, which now consists of my two young daughters, and I seek avenues for service by volunteering in church and community activities.
About my practice
My chosen field gives me a very special opportunity to connect and help people in a meaningful way, and I find great satisfaction in being able to help patients understand what concerns them, translate what they may not grasp, facilitate getting them the appropriate evaluations, and communicate with them and their families. I feel very honored that patients have entrusted me with their care and strive to treat them as I would my own family. I feel that healthy living and preventive care are the best ways to stay healthy, but I'm also here to help you when you are sick. I want to be your partner in health, and it helps me better care for you when you are actively involved in taking care of your health.
How I thrive
I firmly believe in Kaiser Permanente's philosophy of health in mind, body, and spirit, and try to live it in my life every day. Keeping balance in my life is very important to me. My family life is a major priority for me. I enjoy family outings to theme parks, vacation destinations, and local events. I volunteer in my children's school as much as possible. My daughters and I share a love for reading, movies, music, and dance. We cherish our time together. I make it a priority to set aside time to just relax or read a good novel.
