Professional Statement
I have been in private practice in Santa Monica since 2004. I graduated with honors from the University of California, Davis, School of Medicine. I completed residency in Obstetrics and Gynecology with a special interest in adolescent gynecology at Cedar-Sinai Medical Center. My practice now serves women from adolescence to menopause. With an emphasis on preventative health, I practice holistic medicine with compassion and a listening ear. I believe our attitude and approach to life significantly impacts our health. A positive outlook, regular exercise, mindful eating, stress management, and caring relationships combined with regular visits to a knowledgeable, empathic physician forms the fountain of youth. Simply stated, but difficult to achieve, these goals are addressed regularly in my practice. I became a doctor because I love to learn and to teach. With gratitude, I continue to develop my career through continuing education in medicine including the field of genetics and minimally invasive surgery. My passion is obstetrics. I take pride in my deliveries, being as present as possible and knowing my patients well.
