About Me

I am a board certified head and neck surgeon who specializes in facial plastic and reconstructive surgery. I am a Bay Area native and attended De La Salle High School in Concord, CA. I studied biochemistry and molecular and cellular biology at the University of California, Davis and was fortunate enough to receive the prestigious full-tuition academic Regent’s Scholarship from UC Davis. I graduated early, ranking #1 in the College of Biological Sciences with a 4.0 GPA and was awarded The College Medal: the highest honor offered by the University to 1 graduating senior per year. I was recruited to UCLA Medical School with a Full Tuition Merit Scholarship in 2008.

At UCLA I achieved one of the highest scores in the nation on the medical licensing exam and was fortunate to elected to the Alpha Omega Alpha Honors society. I was accepted into my first choice, top ranked, five-year surgical training program in my hometown of San Francisco at the University of California San Francisco.

After residency, I was accepted into a prestigious Fellowship in Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery with the former president of The Academy of Facial Plastic Surgery, Dr. Edward H. Farrior. I was fortunate to be awarded the Jack R. Anderson Prize for Scholastic Excellence in 2018. This prize is awarded annually to the U.S. or Canadian surgeon who achieves the highest combined score on the written and oral portions of the American Board of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery examination administered in Washington, D.C. This is the most prestigious award given by the ABFPRS to only one graduating fellow per year.

In addition to my aesthetic work, Philanthropy is a pillar of my practice. I am committed to helping children throughout the world with limited medical and financial resources receive surgeries, including cleft lip and palate reconstruction, through Healing the Children, a non-profit organization focused on international health.

I am thrilled to continue my passion of Facial Plastic Surgery joining the excellent medical staff at Kaiser Permanente. In Oakland, I look forward to helping Bay Area patients with all their Facial cosmetic and reconstructive concerns including; Cosmetic and Functional Rhinoplasty (Nose job), Face and Neck Lifting, Blepharoplasty (eyelid surgery), Brow lifting, Non-invasive Mini-Facelift (Lunchtime Facelift), Botox and Dermal Fillers, and Facial Feminization Surgery.
