"As a medical professional, I am committed to patient-focused care. I am known to have a unique ability to connect with everyone I work with from my patients and their families to my colleagues and co-workers. I am an intuitive listener and I have an exceptional bedside manner, both of which increase my effectiveness as a physician.
I enjoy what I do and have found value in every aspect of my education and professional training.
I attended UCLA for my undergraduate degree and received my M.D. from UCLA in 2001. I completed my residency at the University of Arizona in 2004.
In Phoenix, I worked IPN of Arizona as Lead Physician. In this position, I was responsible for managing the physicians at three hospitals as well as managing a Long Term Acute Care (LTAC) hospital. I also facilitated the scheduling, planning, and optimization of care for the managed care patients at these facilities.
As Medical Director for Tri-City Medical Associates, I enjoyed directing the day to day medical management of providers at four different facilities. I also oversaw and implemented strategic planning, conflict resolution, and direct patient care programs.
In 2008 I took a position at Sound Physicians, since then I have worked at several facilities in Phoenix, most recently, Arizona Heart Hospital & Phoenix Baptist Hospital. I am fortunate to continue my work with Sound as a Hospitalist.
Throughout my career, I have served as Governing Board Member and Medical Executive Committee Member at Promise Specialty Hospital, Medical Executive Committee Member and Co-Chair Quality Council at St. Luke's, and Chair Quality Council at Mountain Vista Medical Center.
In addition to my professional endeavors, I am devoted to combining my personal ambitions and talents with my medical skills and training to better the community through my charitable foundation The Power in Youth,ThePowerInYouth.com."
