About me

As a doctor at Sanitas, I show my patients the utmost compassion—it's the marvelous thing that allows us to be human. A good day at work means I’m able to reach a calm consensus with my patients and am able to achieve the very best outcome for them.

Born in Cuba, I moved to Miami at four years of age, where I was raised by my grandmother. I strongly believe that the most important spiritual principle is humility, and that our purpose in life is to be of service to others. I decided to go into medicine because I strongly believe that I can help patients get better and get their lives back to normal. I speak both English and Spanish—while at home I speak mostly Spanish to my sons, so they become fluent. I speak English while at work unless my patients prefer communicating in Spanish.

I'm a husband and proud dad of two boys, ages two and nine years old. When I take off my coat, I enjoy spending time with my family. And, I coach my son's little league baseball team.
