Hello! Welcome to my Web page. Thank you for the opportunity to introduce myself, and share a bit about my work as a staff emergency department physician.
I am a Southern California native. I come from a family of healthcare providers. My father was a respected and beloved family physician, and my mother was a registered nurse. Growing up, I spent summers and school holidays helping my father in his medical practice. My first clinical experience in my medical training was in a busy emergency room in Chicago. I discovered that I enjoyed helping patients in crisis, and so I chose to pursue emergency medicine as a career.
I work with a fantastic team of physician specialists, nurses, technicians, and support staff to see members through medical crises, large and small. Whether a member comes to the Emergency Departments suffering an acute heart attack or a severe earache, our goal is to direct appropriate resources to provide the best possible patient care. I am especially proud that our doors are always open at any hour, day or night, whenever care is needed.
Staying healthy so I can do my job well and enjoy life is something I take seriously. I believe that a good balance of healthy activities, such as exercise, sleeping, and eating well, as well as quality time with family, appreciation of the arts, and involvement in civic affairs, all factor into making a well-rounded and caring person.
