About me

I was born in Pinar del Rio, Cuba. Spanish is my mother tongue, and I speak English fluently as well. I moved to the US in 2013. I got into medicine because I felt the need to serve other human beings, to help improve their health and give them the opportunity to live happy and healthy lives along with their families. 

I am very blessed to enjoy my work, providing high-quality medical attention and serving others. I try to generate good vibes with my patients and co-workers and sustain a right-minded work ethic. I want my patients and their families to know they’ll find a highly qualified team at Sanitas, that we’re committed to them with proactive quality care.  

In my free time, I like to spend time with my family. They’ve been with me through all the ups and downs and have supported me in every situation that life has brought to our lives. I enjoy listening to good music as much as I like to play it. I love to pick up a good book and catch up on my reading. I also like to cook—I am really proud of my cooking skills—and watch a good TV show now and then.
