Kaiser Permanente physician
My gender: Male
Not accepting new patients. Please call 1-888-956-1616.
I am glad to have the opportunity to present my credentials to you and share other information about myself. It's so important that you feel comfortable with your personal physician, and I hope this page will help you start to get to know me.
I was born in San Salvador, El Salvador. After high school I came to the United States and did my undergraduate education at UC Berkeley. I completed medical school at UC Irvine and did my residency in family medicine at Kaiser Permanente Los Angeles Medical Center. During my time in residency, my wife and I fell in love with Southern California and decided to stay and start our family here. I enjoy reading and spending time with my family.
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. 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. I like to get to know my patients and form a trusting relationship with them, and many times with their families too. I sincerely feel that in order to have an effective, therapeutic, and healing interaction that mutual respect and trust is required.
When I am not in the office, I enjoy bike riding with my children. I also like wood carving, and greatly enjoy building furniture.
