Thank you for visiting my Web page. I am an infectious disease physician at Kaiser Permanente Riverside and Moreno Valley. I am proud to be part of the Kaiser Permanente team. I strive to provide the best possible care to our members in collaboration with my colleagues.
I was born and raised in Argentina and received my medical degree from the University of Buenos Aires. For the first 10 years of my medical career I was a practicing Ob/Gyn physician. I immigrated to the United States in 2005 and completed my training in internal medicine at UCLA and in infectious disease at UCSF-Fresno. We moved to the Riverside-Inland Empire area to be close to my husband’s family.
As an infectious disease specialist, I work with your personal physician and other specialists. I see people in the hospital and also in the outpatient clinic. I have a busy HIV practice and I have experience treating complicated cases of Coccidiodomycosis and diseases endemic to the Central Valley of California. I also have a personal interest in tropical medicine and a fascination with gynecologic infections. I am an active member of the American Microbiology Society and the Infectious Disease Society of America.
Practicing my faith is very important. My husband provides balance to my professional life and we love traveling by motorcycle, especially the roads less traveled. I enjoy photographing landscapes of places reachable only by backpacking. I relish Armenian cooking, which is rooted in my family’s heritage. Of course, as a true Argentinian, I am a huge soccer fanatic.
