I was born and raised in the San Francisco Bay Area. I graduated from Scripps College with a Biology degree and attended Touro University, California for my Medical School training. I pursued Family Medicine at Kaiser Permanente San Jose Family Medicine Residency, and was appointed Chief Resident during my last year. I love Family Medicine because of the breadth of cases and the relationships I form with my patients. I have a special interest in Osteopathic Manipulative Medicine, which I perform in my practice, as well as Integrative Medicine, Obesity Medicine, Lifestyle Medicine, Graduate Medical Education, Adolescent health, and Dermatology. I helped create our Lifestyle Medicine curriculum at my Residency program and I have completed the 200 hour Residency course in Integrative Medicine. I am a current member of the American College of Lifestyle Medicine, Obesity Medicine Association, American Academy of Family physicians, and California Academy of Family Physicians.
I look forward to meeting you and your family, and I hope that we create a longstanding relationship!
