My Philosophy and Approach to Wellness...

As a double-board certified physician in internal medicine and cardiology, my mission is to help empower you to take better control of your health. Through more personalized care and preventive medicine, we can create an individual health plan to help improve your health. I am committed to building a trusted relationship with you, one founded on compassion, open communication and mutual respect.

I strive to create a welcoming and comfortable environment where you feel heard, understood and supported. I do my best to stay abreast of medical advancements and continuously expand my knowledge so I can help you receive the attention you deserve. I believe in proactive and preventive approaches, offering comprehensive screenings, appropriate treatments and solutions tailored to your unique needs. 

In my MDVIP-affiliated practice, I aim to exceed your expectations in your healthcare experience, from prompt and convenient scheduling to attentive and unrushed appointments. Your well-being is my priority, and I work collaboratively with specialists when needed. 

I am an attending physician at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles, recognized by U.S. News & World Report in 2022-2023 as the No. 1 hospital in California and No. 2 hospital in the nation. In my office, I see patients from the greater Los Angeles area, Beverly Hills, Santa Monica, San Fernando Valley, Burbank and Pasadena. Together, we can embark on a path toward improved health and well-being. I would be honored to be your healthcare partner, guiding and supporting you every step of the way.


 It is important, now more than ever, to have a primary care doctor who has the time and resources to care for you personally and proactively. Watch this video to hear more.
