Welcome to my Web page and the Pulmonary and Critical Care Department. I look forward to the opportunity to take excellent care of your health.
Southern California has always been my home. I was born and raised in Los Angeles and did all my medical training in California. I have always been driven to help others. So becoming a physician was an obvious career choice for me. Practicing medicine has proven to be very rewarding for me in many ways. I am a strong believer in preventive medicine, as well as the importance of caring for a patient's mind, body, and soul as a whole.
As a pulmonologist and intensivist, I spend my days in both clinic and the hospital. I believe all patients deserve careful attention, professionalism, and compassionate care. Patient education is an important part of my practice as I feel that it is essential to work together as a physician-patient team to maintain excellent health. I am particularly interested in physician education to ensure a high quality, evidenced-based practice.
I thrive through my yoga practice, which leads to relaxation of both my mind and body. I also have a passion for cooking and eating healthy, delicious new foods. My ultimate joy in life is spending time with my beautiful family: my loving husband and two amazing daughters.
