My approach to care

My approach to care is to treat each patient with respect and dignity while taking a comprehensive approach to their medical problems.

Why I went into healthcare

Since early childhood, I have wanted to pursue medicine in order to help everyone in need of medical care, regardless of their ability to pay. I prioritize medical knowledge by dedicating a significant amount of time staying current through medical education courses in order to always meet the standard of care for all my patients.

Something you might not know about me is that I was born in El Salvador and emigrated to the United States in 1965 at the age of 13. I love to travel, collects wines, entertain my grandchildren at home and walk my dog.
