Support teaching, research, and patient care.
Graduated MIT with a degree in Biology, UCSF MD, Children's Hospital Oakland for pediatrics residency, UCSF for Adolescent Medicine Fellowship. UC Berkeley for MPH in Child and Maternal Health specializing in obesity.Currently, I work at the Weight clinic, where I help patients and families improve their food choices and check for co-morbidities of obesity such as hyperinsulinemia, obstructive sleep apnea, vitamin D deficiency, and prepare for bariatric surgery, if applicable. I enjoy seeing adolescents for general well child checkups but I also enjoy doing "outpatient gynecology" for Teens and young adults. I particularly like discussing birth control options, sexually transmitted infections, that menstruation is optional, and treating acne and menstrual cramps.Also, I am the CEO & Co-Founder of www.PandiaHealth.com, a birth control delivery company that also provides a doctor's consult if needed.
