Where I practice
Hi! Welcome to my Web page. I hope this will be useful as you search for the physician who is right for you. I believe that everyone should be comfortable and happy with their personal physician.
I grew up in a small suburb of Paranaque, a city in the Philippines. I am the only doctor in my family. I decided to be a physician because I come from a family where diabetes and hypertension are common problems and I believe that by knowing more about these diseases, I will be able to help both my family and the community. It has also been my passion to be of service to those in need of medical care. I completed residency training in general pediatrics in the Philippines and worked there as a pediatrician for a few years. I then immigrated to the United States and underwent family medicine training in Toledo, Ohio.
About my practice
My practice focuses on the prevention of disease and the early diagnosis of possible medical problems. I value our members and feel very honored that they have entrusted me with their care. I see every office visit as a special opportunity to connect with and help people in a meaningful way by listening and responding to what they need.
How I thrive
It is my philosophy to maintain balance in life. It is important to take time out of my daily schedule to go running or swimming after work. I enjoy the outdoors and spend time with my family exploring nature by hiking, kayaking, and scuba diving. I am very fortunate to be in Southern California where I can enjoy nature at its best.
