About me

Welcome to my Web page. It is my privilege to be of service to you as both a family medicine physician and a geriatrician. One of my personal mottos is, “The member is the boss." I always remember that I am here to serve you and that your needs are my highest priority.

Biography

I became a physician in order to help others. Growing up in a suburb of San Diego in a working-class family, we relied extensively on our family physician. I was influenced greatly by our physician's compassion, his availability, and his reassuring nature. Knowing that he was also from a working-class background gave me the confidence to pursue this career. I am the first physician in my family and I remain true to my roots as the child of a working man and a farmer's daughter.

About my practice

My goal is to successfully balance scientific knowledge and intuitive skills in order to effectively address my members' questions and concerns.

How I thrive

I inherited significant medical risk factors and every day I am faced with challenges to my health posed by these risk factors. In addressing my own risks, I realized that I didn't have to make radical changes in my lifestyle. Small steps were all that were required to keep my blood pressure, blood sugar, and cholesterol within acceptable ranges. The small steps that I've taken are within the capabilities of most people. In achieving these successes, I don't become discouraged by not being able to take on overly ambitious lifestyle changes. Being healthy needs to be achievable before it can be successful.
