About me

Hello, and welcome to my Web page. I have been part of the Kaiser Permanente family in the department of physical medicine and rehabilitation since 1980. I started my career with Kaiser Permanente in Panorama City and remained there for about three years. I then moved West when I was asked by the appointed medical director of the Woodland Hills Medical Center (then under construction) to join him and start the Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation Department. For the following 19 years, I was the chief of service of the department and directed its growth and development. I then gave up my administrative duties to dedicate myself full time to clinical work for our members.

Biography

I was born in Leon, a northwest province of Spain. My family and I moved to Cuba when I was a child and lived there for 10 years. I knew since I was a child that I wanted to become a physician to help others. After I finished high school, I started college with a straight path to medicine at the University of Havana. I then moved back to Spain and finished medical school at Universidad Complutense in Madrid. After I finished medical school, I married and moved to Los Angeles, where I completed my residency at UCLA-Greater Los Angeles Veterans Administration Hospital. My hobbies are building computers from scratch, photography, gardening, and, most recently, golfing. I also enjoy traveling.

About my practice

I chose the specialty of physical medicine and rehabilitation because I enjoy the challenges and rewards of helping people with disabilities including members with strokes, head and spinal cord injuries, and amputations, and, to be able to ease the suffering of people that are in chronic pain. We have expertise in prosthetics and orthotics. We perform electrodiagnostic testing of peripheral nerve, muscle, and neuromuscular junction diseases. We also treat nonsurgical orthopedic conditions, including non-displaced vertebral fractures that do not require surgery, disc herniations, arthritis, and tendonitis/bursitis. I was involved with and had a clinical teaching appointment at UCLA's department of medicine, division of physical medicine and rehabilitation, where I started as a clinical instructor and was later promoted to associate clinical professor. I taught physical medicine and rehabilitation residents for several years in the early 1990s when I was able to volunteer my time.

How I thrive

I thrive by exercising. I enjoy gardening. I have taken up the challenge of golf and enjoy getting up early on weekends, going to the golf course, and playing the "back nine" with friends.
