Where I practice
Hi, my nickname is Shanthi. Welcome to my Web page. I am happy to have this chance to introduce myself to you and tell you about my work as a physician and as a physician administrator at Kaiser Permanente.
I have practiced internal medicine for more than 25 years at Kaiser Permanente Woodland Hills Medical Center. In 2003, I began my administrative role as the assistant area medical director for the medical center. I work along with several others to ensure that our members receive high-quality care. I come from a family of physicians who have either worked at Kaiser Permanente or are working now for Kaiser Permanente, and my passion for medicine started from a very early age. Helping others during their times of need makes me happy and enriches my life.
About my practice
Geriatric medicine has been my work for more than 20 years. I focus not only on the member's illness but also on his or her lifestyle, because that plays a major role in one's overall health. The opportunity to build long-term relationships with my patients has rewarded me every day. I contribute my time to an organization dedicated to helping victims of child abuse.
How I thrive
Daily meditation, regular exercise, and a positive attitude towards life make my mind, body, and spirit stay healthy. I believe in work-life balance.
