An important part of being your physician is understanding who you are. That also means understanding how valuable your time is. My colleagues and I have developed My Doctor Online so you can e-mail me, check your lab results, make an appointment, access our many online programs or get information about a particular health topic – any time it’s convenient for you.

I am a native San Franciscan and was a Kaiser Permanente patient growing up. I remember having a very positive experience with Kaiser and remained connected through the online network despite moving out of state for medical school and completing my residency at California Pacific Medical Center.

I am excited to return to Kaiser Permanente San Francisco and hope to replicate my positive experience as your physician. I look forward to working together to maximize your health and wellness. With Kaiser Permanente’s comprehensive and efficient care model which includes seamless online access, same-day access to subspecialty consultants, and a wide array of educational and support services, I am confident you will receive the best care possible and be the best that you can be.
