Twenty years of experience as a physician have taught me that treating a person's health, not their disease or diagnosis, is the best approach. I partner with my patients to tailor their health care, and trust and communication are the pillars this is built upon. I was raised in Los Angeles, and San Diego has been my home for over 20 years now. My family is my number one priority away from the office and hospital. Travel, music, and fitness are my passions. I am delighted to be part of the UCSD Family Medicine Residency program now, and to participate in teaching UCSD medical students.
