About Me

Welcome to my Web page. I am glad to have the opportunity to present my credentials to you and share a few other details about myself. It's very important to feel comfortable with your physician, and I hope this page will help you get to know me.


I was born in Puerto Armuelles, Panama. I immigrated to the United States when I was 4 years old and have spent most of my life living in Los Angeles. I am married to a wonderful woman, and we have 2 beautiful boys. I have 6 brothers and 5 sisters. I enjoy spending time with my family, exercising, and traveling. I became a doctor because I feel I can make a difference in someone's life.

About my practice

I have a growing practice of mostly adults. I spend the majority of my time in the outpatient setting, and I also have administrative duties as the physician in charge at the Lynwood Medical Offices. My main goal is to keep you healthy by focusing on preventive care and also by managing any chronic medical conditions you may have.

How I thrive

I try to maintain a balanced lifestyle by exercising, eating healthy, and enjoying the pleasures of life in moderation. I feel good about myself when I am making a difference in someone else's life and when I do things that have meaning and purpose. My family is the most important part of my life. Without them, I have nothing and would not be where I am today. I can honestly say that I wake up each day living a wonderful dream.
