Welcome to my Web page. I want to take this opportunity to introduce myself and tell you about my practice. As a physician with Kaiser Permanente, I look forward to working with you to provide the best possible health care.
I grew up in a small, rural community in the Philippines and learned early on that helping people is what I enjoy doing. I also realized that being a medical doctor would not only fulfill my career goals but also give me the opportunity and the tools to help people in need. I trained in the Philippines to become an internist. Because primary care is near to my heart, I pursued the required education and training here in the United States so that I could continue to practice family medicine here at Kaiser Permanente.
I agree with Kaiser Permanente’s philosophy of offering preventive care to promote healthy living. As a primary care doctor, I like to promote total wellness by encouraging you to have a healthy lifestyle, being here for you when you are sick, and providing medical advice whenever you need it. I believe in a doctor-patient partnership. I am here to listen; I am here to care.
I firmly believe in Kaiser Permanente’s philosophy of total health in mind, body, and spirit, and I try to incorporate it in my life every day. In order for me to give advice on healthy living, I must practice it myself. I am a wife and mother, and my family’s health is very important to me. A healthy diet for us is a high priority. We have regular outdoor activities, especially every weekend. A healthy mind and body together determine a person’s well-being.
