Changes as of Sept. 1, 2015

I am happy to announce that I will be joining the El Camino Women’s Medical Group in Mountain View after a 6 month sabbatical.  My sabbatical will start September 1, 2015.

Why did I choose El Camino Women’s Medical Group?

  • All female Ob/Gyn doctors (Dr. Amy Teng, Dr. Sarah Azad, Dr. Erica Balassiano)
  • Wonderfully personable and well-trained physicians
  • Female Psychiatrist on staff with special interest in women’s mental health
  • Nutritionist on site to work with patients with PCOS, high lipids, diabetes, or weight management.
  • Lactation Specialist available for breastfeeding mothers
  • Convenient location behind El Camino Hospital with great parking
  • Most insurances accepted including Blue Cross, Blue Shield, Aetna, Cigna, United Healthcare and Healthnet PPOs and some HMOs
  • Second office location near Valley Fair Shopping Center

After September 1st, medical records from my practice will be moved to the El Camino Women’s Medical Group.  During my time away, Drs. Teng and Azad and their new partner can see you for any Ob/Gyn issues you may have.  In addition, they will handle prescription refills and medical records requests while I am on sabbatical.
