About me

At Sanitas, my patients receive dedicated care and attention to help them feel better and be well. They can communicate comfortably with me in either Spanish or English. A good day at work is being able to help my patients, finding the right diagnosis for their illnesses, giving prompt and high-quality care, and for all of them to do well. 

I was born and raised in Cuba, where I studied to become a doctor and family medicine specialist. As early as elementary school, I developed a love for science and became interested in medicine. I knew it was the job for me—I wanted to help people. Respectful and supportive of others, I love to be helpful if there’s an opportunity. Being a doctor provides innumerable opportunities and the immense privilege to improve the lives of patients. In 2010, I emigrated to the U.S. seeking better opportunities, and for the last five years have been living in Tampa, Florida. 

When I’m not working, I enjoy doing things with my family, like travelling and cooking for them. I love to work in my garden and play with my dogs.
