My Specialty: Family Medicine
Languages I Speak: English, Spanish , Portugese.
I grew up in Laguna Hills, which is in Orange County. I did my undergraduate studies at UCSB, where I majored in Global Studies and Portuguese. In my free time, I like surfing, reading, and going to LA Rams football games (pre-COVID, of course).
I am a native speaker of Spanish, and I also speak Portuguese.
My inspiration to become a provider came from my family. My grandfather was a physician in Venezuela and my uncle, a gastroenterologist in Lakewood, gave me my first clinical experience.
My care philosophy is guided by my belief that patients should be educated and empowered both in prevention and treatment of their conditions. My patients have taught me that to be a competent provider; I need to be a lifelong learner. When it comes to patient care, we can never know enough.
