Where I practice
Thank you for visiting my Web page! It is my pleasure to introduce myself to you. I believe that being proactive about your health is one of the best investments you can make to live a long and productive life.
I was born and raised in Manila, Philippines. Growing up with five siblings made me fascinated with how different the human mind and body can be. After finishing a bachelor’s degree in psychology, I went to medical school to continue my studies. I love to travel and pursued further training in family medicine to allow me the flexibility of caring for people of all ages. There is so much that we can do to prevent diseases and to keep our minds and body healthy.
About my practice
Working at Kaiser Permanente has given me a better appreciation of technology and how it can further enhance preventive care. I believe that if everyone has the knowledge, then we can make the right decisions for ourselves. My role is to help my patients explore what their options are and decide which ones are the most appropriate given available scientific evidence.
How I thrive
I like to live vicariously by reading novels. I also like to travel. The beach is my favorite vacation spot. I also enjoy working out by doing Zumba and playing with my cat. I have been blessed with a great, supportive husband. We recently expanded our family to three with the birth of our lovely daughter.
