Welcome to my Web page! I hope the information you find here will be helpful to you in getting to know more about me.
I was born and raised in Southern California, but my parents are from Puerto Rico. I am the fourth of seven children. I decided I wanted to become a physician because I saw a great need for Spanish- speaking physicians. Also, my father is a minister and I watched how he has helped people all his life. I wanted to be in a profession that would do the same. I am married and have two beautiful children.
My team consists of nurses, medical assistants and other health professional that all work together to provide responsive care to our patients. I treat many Latino patients, many of whom only speak Spanish. Most of our team members speak Spanish. I like to treat our patients like family. We focus a lot on preventive care because we know how important this is to keep our patients healthy and happy.
Keeping balance in my life is very important to me; having healthy relationships at home and work is invaluable. I love spending time with my family; that helps me keep everything in perspective, particularly on my busiest or most stressful days. My hobbies include singing and volunteering to work with the children at my local church.
