I have practiced OB/GYN medicine in the Bay area since 1989 and in Fremont since 1992. Many of the young women in my practice were delivered by me, and I have traveled the journey from new mom to empty nester with their mothers. It was a privilege to share the joy of new life with so many wonderful patients.
Since 1999, my practice has been exclusively gynecology, and includes alternatives to hysterectomy, family planning, and menopausal medicine. I enjoy the collaborative relationship I have with each patient – addressing her concerns and providing information so that she can make the health care choices that most suit her needs. I am particularly interested in the management and prevention of disease with nutrition, exercise and stress management (lifestyle medicine). I believe that treatment of illness is not enough. As a physician, my role is to promote wellness and to provide women with the guidance that will allow them to achieve their best health.
I was honored to give the keynote address at the 2012 and 2014 Women’s Healthcare Conferences at Washington Hospital. I have been teaching wellness classes at Washington Hospital since 2014, including a free monthly educational and support group called Women Empowering Women. I am a frequent speaker at community events and address women’s health topics as well as lifestyle change. I am proud to be on multiple Top Doctors and Best Doctors lists since 1996.
I try to practice what I preach. I enjoy yoga, hiking and reading, and I am a healthy but lazy cook.
