About me

Welcome to my Web page! I am a doctor specializing in internal medicine, and I currently work in the outpatient clinic Kaiser Permanente Fontana Medical Center.

Biography

I am originally from the Philippines and received my medical degree from Far Eastern University in Manila. In 1990, I came to the United States and completed my internal medicine residency training at Saint Joseph Hospital in Chicago. I started my own private practice as an internist in 2001. In April 2016, I joined Kaiser Permanente as a primary care physician in internal medicine.

About my practice

I am board certified in internal medicine. My philosophy is to do my best in whatever I do and this translates to my work as a doctor by offering the best that I can for my patients. I am a compassionate person and I genuinely care for my patients. For this reason, I try to keep myself well informed on current medical care.

How I thrive

My family and my strong faith in God help me to face the challenges I encounter in my personal and professional life. Supporting mission work gives me inspiration to work not only for myself, but for others as well.
