Hello, and welcome to my Web page.
I was born in Mexico, but came to the United States when I was a year old. I was raised in Sylmar, and attended Occidental College and UCLA Medical School. I have always worked hard, and empathize with my patients when they talk about their struggles.
I became a family medicine physician because I believe in the total care of a family from all perspectives. My highest priority is to provide excellent holistic care for all my patients. As a family doctor, I am able to get to know my patients from the young grandchild to the elderly great-grandmother!
For my own wellness, I believe it is important to maintain work-life balance. I thrive by spending time with my family, and getting lots of exercise. Hiking, biking, and being outdoors provides good physical exercise, but is also good for the mind and spirit. I also enjoy Pilates and attending concerts. Keeping a healthy body and mind is the key to a long, happy life!
