About

Bio

A Brazilian born, attended University at Temple University and studied medicine at the Autonomous University of Guadalajara and residency in Chicago. I am married to Ana for 23 years and have a son who now attends UCF in Pre Med. I love family practice because it allows me to know all about my patient providing comprehensive care. Prevention is the theme of our practice because it allows for early diagnosis , early treatment therefore diminishing serious and tragic complications. We balance Allopathic, traditional medicine with homeopathic medicine where we work with nature in providing healing and health. We also balance our patients physical, spiritual and emotional spheres to achieve health. I am a fanatic soccer fan and I love spending time with my family and friends.
