Kaiser Permanente physician
Idioma que hablo:
Se aceptan pacientes nuevos. Es posible que sea necesaria una remisión.
Ultimately, there is no substitute for actually meeting someone in person, but hopefully this page will give you an idea of who I am and what practicing medicine means to me.
I was born in Cuba and immigrated with my parents to Southern California in 1974. I feel that God placed the love of medicine in my heart when I was 5 years old. I never tire of the wonder of creation and the beauty of science. I enjoyed a liberal arts education at Whittier College and grew greatly at the Albert Einstein College of Medicine in the Bronx, New York. My family and I put our faith in action, after my specialty training, by moving to Ecuador to serve as medical missionaries for three years. While there, I worked in medical education, as well as direct patient care. I'm still active in many charitable projects and enjoy doing them with my family. I was an Eagle Scout when I was a boy and am now active in my sons' Boy Scout troop. I coach soccer, a game I also enjoy playing. I also love baseball.
I've been blessed to be part of the Kaiser Permanente family since 2004. I always do my best to focus on my members' needs and do what's right for them. As a board-certified internist, I enjoy the intellectual challenges my practice brings. I enjoy working in the hospital with members at their critical time of need, as well as teaching our family medicine residents. As a bilingual and bicultural physician, I always enjoy working with Spanish-speaking members.
Emotional health is very important to me. Although I love medicine, I have a full life away from the hospital. My family is a true blessing and a high a priority in my life. I enjoy playing with my children and we are all very active in our church and local mission projects. For my physical health, I play soccer, play with my kids, and use the stairs when I can. My wife does a great job of keeping my diet healthy, and every day I consume several servings of a fruit or vegetable known as coffee. Most importantly of all, I keep a healthy perspective on the meaning of life.
