About me

Welcome to my Web page. I am happy to have this chance to introduce myself to you and tell you about my practice. I feel very fortunate to work at Kaiser Permanente because of my wonderful colleagues and our members, and I look forward to working with you to care for your health.

Biography

I was raised in Southern California and attended college at UC Berkeley (go Bears!) where I fell in love with the Bay Area. I graduated from the Universidad Autónoma de Guadalajára and New York Medical College for my medical school training and completed my residency training with USC at California Hospital Medical Center.

About my practice

I feel that healthy living and preventive care are the best ways to stay healthy, but I am also here to help you when you are sick. It is a privilege to help people understand what concerns them, translate what they may not grasp, and communicate with them and their families. I want to be your partner in health, and it helps me better care for you when you are actively involved in taking care of your health.

How I thrive

Keeping balance in my life is very important to me. My family life is my major priority. We enjoy family outings and Star Wars sit-ins. I enjoy exercising and keeping in shape. I grew up an avid volleyball player and plan to play volleyball alongside my kids, just like my father raised me.
