About me

Welcome to my Web page. I am happy to be able to introduce myself and share my credentials with you. It is important for you to feel comfortable with your personal physician, and I hope this page will allow you to get to know me a little better.

Biography

I was born in Ecuador and immigrated into the United States in 1968. My mother and I first lived in New York City for two years, and in 1970 we moved to California. I received a bachelor's degree in Public Health at UCLA in 1984. I was very fortunate to attend medical school at the UCLA School of Medicine and obtained my medical degree in 1987. Soon after my graduation, I began my residency in family medicine practice at Kaiser Permanente Los Angeles Medical Center. It was a wonderful experience and the training was excellent! The next important step in my career was to become a staff physician at Kaiser Permanente, a position I have held since 1990.

About my practice

I devote a great deal of my time to preventive care and health evaluation. However, I am here for you when you are ill and will be your partner in health to get you better. Our team has a great group of nurses who will assist me in taking the best possible care of you.

How I thrive

Keeping balance in life is very important to me. Decreasing your daily stress is crucial to your health and can be achieved by exercising, following a healthy diet, and participating in activities that you find enjoyable. I love my job but also enjoy spending quality time with my family. I love to watch my daughters play soccer and be the team doctor who handles minor injuries when needed. I also enjoy going to my beginner's yoga class once a week because it helps me reduce my stress. Listening to music, whether it is Latin salsa or the sounds of the 80s, is also a fun way to spend my free time.
