About me

As a doctor at Sanitas, I strive to be as transparent as possible, while actively listening to my patients’ thoughts and concerns to ensure that we establish a trusting relationship. A good day at work for me is when I can fully understand my patients’ concerns and provide comprehensive treatment that will make them better.

Originally from the Dominican Republic, I moved to New York when I was 12 years old. I returned to the Dominican Republic to attend medical school before becoming a permanent Florida resident in 2004. I'm fluent in English and Spanish, and also understand some Italian and Portuguese. I chose to pursue a degree in medicine to fulfill my childhood dream. I've always enjoyed helping people and learning new things, and medicine puts my love of studying and helping others front and center.

In my free time, I enjoy reading and studying news and information about medical advancements. I also enjoy listening to music, traveling, exercising and gardening.
