Where I practice
Welcome to my Web page. I hope that by reading this page you will know my practice and me a little better. I look forward to working with you in caring for your health.
My fascination with medicine started when I was hospitalized at age six. Our family physician made a lasting impression on me. His compassion and dedication reassured me that I was in good hands. I earned my medical degree in the Philippines, and then I went on to finish my residency and fellowship training in Pennsylvania. After my training, I relocated to sunny Bakersfield, where I met my wife and have been blessed with a wonderful daughter and a charming son.
About my practice
I believe that prevention is the best treatment. In my practice, I take time to listen to my members' concerns, and I discuss treatment plans and options with them. My staff and I also make sure that our members follow through with their treatments. And our care doesn't stop there. We also partner with our members to help them maintain a healthy lifestyle. As a geriatrician, I also cater to the special needs of senior members. It is important that they get proper care and attention in a safe, healthy environment.
How I thrive
My family life is a major priority for me. After a long day at work, I look forward to spending quality time with my wife and children at home. My religious faith and support from my family inspire and rejuvenate me. I also have a great love of basketball and enjoy playing tennis and bicycling around my neighborhood.
