Personal Information

Growing up, my family exposed me to a very diverse culture. I was raised in London and Los Angeles but had travels and short stays all over Europe, Africa, South America and the United States. Traveling is still a great passion of mine.
I thoroughly enjoy city life like museums, restaurants, taking long walks sight-seeing.You might see me at a group exercise class lifting weights, stepping or even the occasional Zumba class.

Dr O. Has been exceptional. He understands some rare conditions I have and makes very necessary testing and treatment for them. He is support has made such a huge difference in dealing with these issues. His emphasis that we are a team working on my health is very reassuring, because he is so knowledgeable I have complete confidence in his guidance, he listens very well to my input as WE decide the next steps. My health has definitely improved while under his care. I remain independent, enjoying life because of his help and very wise medical input and suggestions. He is very encouraging as we continue to deal with issues that can be managed but can't be cured. He listens and accepts my input about what my body is doing, what works and any additional needs that come up. There are few Drs. Who invest the time and energy into "old" people to help not only maintain their health status but improve it. He is an excellent Dr.

This doctor has been very thorough. He also made some diagnosis of serious problems (Parkinson's Disease). Based on his observations he ordered appropriate tests.
