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.
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.
Daily meditation, regular exercise, and a positive attitude towards life make my mind, body, and spirit stay healthy. I believe in work-life balance.
