About Me

I hold the position of Assistant Clinical Professor of Medicine at UCLA’s School of Medicine. I practiced medicine at UCLA for eight years before going into private practice. After three and half years in private practice, I joined UCLA's Arthur Ashe Student Health and Wellness Center. For the past several years I have been taking care of college students, providing the unique opportunity to be involved in the medical care and education of young adults. This why I went into medicine--to provide people with the information they need to take better care of themselves. One of the most important parts of my job is bringing my patients an understanding of wellness. This encapsulates disease prevention and the promotion of health. Be it women's health, or the effective treatment of common problems, an Internist is who you turn to first. Because we're involved with many aspects of medicine I, as an Internist, am acutely aware of the ways that different parts and systems of the body interact. I encourage my patients to become personally involved with and responsible for their own good health practices, while I deliver effective patient-centered medical care with compassion and concern.
