About me

I was born and raised in Tampa, Florida. My Parents are Cuban and Puerto Rican.

I decided to get into medicine because I saw my father form everlasting bonds with his patients. To him medicine is not a job, but truly a calling. He is my main inspiration for wanting to become a doctor and I hope to live up to his example.

I’ve been able to develop many long-standing relationships with my own patients and their families. I love it when they start calling me “my doctor.” Over time I get to know a great deal about their health, their medical needs, their family, and their social context. This helps in preventing illnesses and reducing health risks, which are key elements of family medicine.

I would like new patients to know that at Sanitas we go above and beyond accommodating our patients. We make appointments available, we spend more time with our patients, and we focus on prevention.

When I take off my coat, I love to travel and experience different cultures. My most memorable trip was a missionary one to Guatemala. It was very spiritual and renewed my passion for medicine.
