Where I practice
Hi. Welcome to my Web page. I’m happy to have this chance to introduce myself to you and tell you about my practice. I feel very fortunate to work at Kaiser Permanente among my wonderful colleagues and members. If you ever need my services, I’ll be there to help, and I look forward to working with you.
I chose to work at Kaiser Permanente after three years of private practice in the greater Los Angeles area. I’m married and have two kids—a son and a daughter. I enjoy going to the movies with our young son and going to the beach with the whole family.
About my practice
I focus on the needs and expectations of my members as well as their physical ailments. Ultimately, my goal at work is to help my members lead healthy and productive lives. My patient-centered approach allows me to treat members’ physical ailments as well as address their psychological and emotional needs. The skills I’ve obtained through 12 years of training in my cardiology specialty allow me to treat my members’ irregular heart beats (arrhythmias) so that, hopefully, they can enjoy longer, healthier lives.
How I thrive
I believe that a physician needs to be of healthy mind and body to be able to serve his or her members effectively. So I adhere to a healthy diet and exercise regimen. I practice what I preach. My family plays a very important role in my life. By spending time with my family and focusing on my children's upbringing, I keep a healthy balance between my personal life and my professional life.
