I spent the first nine years of my life living in Mexico. I subsequently moved to San Diego to attend the University of California, San Diego where I studied Chemistry/Biochemistry. I spent a couple years working in the educational and high-tech fields before moving to Los Angeles to attend medical school, then San Francisco for my residency. I was attracted to Kaiser Permanente not only because of the diverse patient population, innovation in health care and its commitment as an organization to provide excellent medical care, but most importantly because it supports doctors in delivering quality care. If you are generally healthy, my goal is to keep you healthy and to focus on prevention. This also means supporting you in finding resources available through Kaiser Permanente to achieve your health goals, such as with weight management and smoking cessation. If you have a chronic disease, my focus is to prevent complication, and work with you to keep you as healthy as possible.
