About me

Welcome to my Web page. I am the physician-in-charge and chief anesthesiologist at the Ontario Vineyard Ambulatory Surgery Center (OVASC). I also serve as the assistant chief of anesthesiology at the Kaiser Permanente Fontana Medical Center. Additionally, I am the physician director of the Kaiser Permanente School of Nursing Anesthesia.

Biography

I have been an anesthesiologist for over 30 years and at Kaiser Permanente for 7 years. I was the chief of anesthesiology at St. Bernardine Medical Center in San Bernardino and in private practice for 23 years until I moved to our Fontana Medical Center and ultimately to OVASC. I did not originally plan a career in medicine until my senior year of college, when a female physician in the health center at my college encouraged me to pursue medicine rather than become a schoolteacher. I feel that I have the best career possible. My main hobby for the last 20 years has been ballroom dancing. I have competed in American Smooth and Latin ballroom dancing, winning many Pro-Am titles. Prior to ballroom dancing, I was active in the competitive tennis circuit.

About my practice

OVASC has served as a model for surgery centers within Kaiser Permanente. Our model of anesthesia practice provides us with safety, efficiency, and high patient satisfaction. These results are accomplished by each team member's being fully accountable for his or her actions.

How I thrive

I stay well by participation in physical activity four times a week in the form of ballroom dancing and aerobics. I thrive mentally through the success of OVASC, with a sense of accomplishment unlike any other I have had professionally.
