Marina del Rey, Santa Monica, female doctor, physician, internist

When you  are feeling well, you just feel happier.  You can lead an active lifestyle and cope more easily with the stressors that we all experience.  People who are in good health can generally expect to live longer, too.   I will help you accomplish this by caring for you when you are ill and implementing preventive care when you are well.  The healthcare you receive will always be first-rate.

The degree to which you feel well is a function of many factors, one of which is the way you're treated by others. You'll receive individualized care and responsive service in a compassionate, friendly environment.  I pride myself on my professionalism and respect your feelings and the value of your time as well. 


Naturally, your level of confidence in a doctor depends greatly on that doctor's qualifications.  I received my Bachelor of Arts degree in Human Biology from Stanford University. Subsequently I earned my M.D. at Albert Einstein College of Medicine in New York and completed my three year residency in Internal Medicine at UCLA. 


Marina del Rey, Santa Monica, doctor, physician, internist, Andrea Ruman and FinneganAfter residency I remained at UCLA where I practiced medicine for eight years before going into private practice.  Currently I hold the position of Assistant Clinical Professor of Medicine at UCLA’s School of Medicine.  After three and half years in private practice I joined UCLA's Arthur Ashe Student Health and Wellness Center located on UCLA's Westwood campus where I am currently practicing medicine.  In addition I am involved in medical consultation and have forayed into doing radio inteviews for CBS News Radio in Los Angeles.  I am also a regular contributor to a nationally known website called ChickRx (www.chickrx.com), a health website and community for twenty-something women.

When I'm not treating patients, I can usually be found exercising at the gym or doing what I love most (even more than eating, hence the gym), which is spending time with my husband, family, friends and my beautiful collie Finnegan (he's the smiling one with the really big nose to the right)!
