About Me

Welcome! I look forward to a long and healthy relationship together, and toward providing you the best possible care for your dermatology needs. A little about me: I was raised in the Bay Area, and while my training took me around the country, I have always known that I would return here to pursue my professional career in medicine.

I attended U.C. Berkeley for undergraduate school, and then completed my medical school training at the University of Rochester in upstate New York, where I was graduated with Honors. I was fortunate to continue my surgery training at Northwestern University in Chicago, and then enjoyed my Dermatology Residency at Baylor College of Medicine, where I also trained an additional year as the Mohs Micrographic Surgery Fellow.

While I enjoy General Dermatology and treat all ages of patients, I have additional training in skin cancer, and in skin cancer surgery.

I am one of the newest additions to the Dermatology Department at Kaiser Permanente Redwood City Medical Center, and I feel very fortunate to be an integral part of such a wonderful and extremely talented team of doctors and staff here on the Penninsula.

Thank you for trusting me with your health care and dermatology needs. My entire team and I will always strive our best to enable you to feel well cared for, and I personally aim to provide you with an exceptional health care experience at each and every visit.

I am passionate about working closely with my patients toward reaching their health care goals, and providing the best care possible. I look forward to meeting you, and toward building a long and rewarding relationship together as your dermatology physician.
