Being a parent is a hard job. We know. Getting good medical care for your child should be your right, not something for which you should have to struggle and fight. We understand.
In our office you will find staff who will take your concerns seriously when you call. Here you will also find a physician and a nurse practitioner who will listen to you and to your child, answer your questions fully and understandably, and treat you with respect. As a parent of a child with special needs, I know from personal experience, that trust with your child’s health is important and must be earned.
Part of that trust comes with the understanding that your child’s wellness or illness, as well as our responsibility to you, does not end when we walk out of the room or when you walk out of the office. We are your advocates and we will do the best we can to give you the resources you need to maneuver through and get the services you need from our ailing health care system.
Since finishing my training
at Children’s Hospital Oakland in 1990, I have worked in the Kaiser
system, private practice, and county health care systems spanning the counties
of Contra Costa, Alameda, and San Francisco. I also have a child in special
education in the Oakland School District. This background gives me a unique
perspective on how health care works, as well as how and why it fails. I am
dedicated to and most enjoy working in multiethnic and multicultural communities.
