Hi, I'm glad to have this opportunity to present my credentials to you and share other information about myself. It's important that you feel comfortable with your personal physician, and I hope this page will help you start to get to know me.
I moved from Colombia to New Orleans to finish my medical school. Then I moved to Southern California to continue my training in the art of obstetrics and gynecology. After completion of my Ob/Gyn residency, I joined a private practice group, which allowed me to fall in love with my profession. After five years in private practice, I was given the opportunity to join the Kaiser Permanente family.
My career in medicine give me a very special opportunity to connect with and help people in a meaningful way—utilizing medical skills and knowledge, but also listening and responding to what members need. Being a doctor allows people to share with me their innermost secrets, fears, and hopes. It’s a privilege to help members understand what concerns them, translate what they may not grasp, get them appropriate evaluations, and communicate with them and their families. I feel very honored that members have entrusted me with their care, and I strive to treat them as I would my own family.
I firmly believe in Kaiser Permanente's philosophy of treating the whole individual, and try to live it in my life every day. My family life is my major priority. I enjoy soccer, kitesurfing, and a nice cup of coffee.
