I graduated from MIT with a degree in Molecular Biology/Genetic Engineering, and went on to complete my Medical Degree at a joint program between Dartmouth Medical School and the Brown School of Medicine (graduated in 1997). I completed my Pediatrics Residency at Children’s Hospital of Los Angeles, and spent additional time training in East-West Medicine at UCLA. I joined Kaiser Permanente in 2006.
I come to Kaiser Permanente from Los Angeles where I won a “Best Pediatrics Attending Teaching Award” in the Residency program that I taught at. I am also cited in the “Guide to America’s Top Pediatricians” in the Consumer’s Research Council of America.
I won Brown Medical School’s Fleet Community Fellowship Award as well as the Kaiser Hicks Williams Community Service Award because of my work in underserved communities in Los Angeles as well as my work internationally.
My special medical interests include asthma, developmental pediatrics, East-West medicine, sports medicine, and international relief work. In addition to English, I am fluent in Spanish and have good speaking ability in Mandarin Chinese.
Roles and Responsibilities
I am part of the clinical faculty of the Stanford Pediatric Residency program and supervise residents.
My goal is to deliver top quality pediatric care in a holistic manner – physically, mentally, socially, emotionally, and developmentally. I understand that each family and culture is different, and I believe it’s important to work with each patient to give them the information and resources to help make the best health care decisions. I believe in maximizing the potential of every child that walks through my door, and want to help families achieve that goal.
