Se aceptan pacientes nuevos. Es posible que sea necesaria una remisión.
Hello, and welcome to my Web page. My specialty is hematology and oncology. This field is challenging for many reasons, but I feel this is where I can help members and their families the most.
I was born in Mexico and raised near the border in San Diego. My parents are hard working and emphasized education as the key towards a better future. I always enjoyed school and learning, but I was not one of those kids who knew they would become a doctor from a young age. Instead, I allowed my interests to guide my way. My love for science started in college. Later I found that medicine would be the best way to combine my interest in science and people.
I had the opportunity to work at the Kaiser Permanente Bellflower Medical Offices while I was a fellow in oncology. I enjoyed my experience with this group for many reasons. First, I found the nursing staff helpful and friendly. Second, the other doctors in this practice were welcoming and knowledgeable. And best of all, the members were wonderful. As I finished my training, an opportunity to join the group came and I signed up without hesitation. Since I joined, I find that my initial impression is still true. We all try to work as a group to provide the best care for our members.
I believe a balanced life is the key to a happy life. I have two sons and spending time with them and my husband is a top priority. We enjoy riding our bikes and walking our dog. I also enjoy reading a good book and watching football.
