About

Bio

I am a Family Medicine specialist graduated from the University of Puerto Rico. I moved to the United States 12 years ago and I have practiced traditional Family Medicine in different settings. I have enjoyed the traditional type of practice, I worked as a site Medical Director, I have done urgent care and hospital setting as well. One of the aspects I have enjoyed the most is teaching medical students, residents and APRNs. I have to definitely say that I have had the opportunity to grow in all these clinical and teaching scenarios. To me Medicine is more than a way of living it is a passion that I want to keep passing on to future generations of medical providers. It is an honor to provide care to all those that need it. Every encounter with a patient is an opportunity to become a better person and professional.

Specialties
Doctors may have more than one area of specialty interest. Board certification in a specialty area means the doctor has completed formal training and has practice experience in that specialty, and has passed the certification examination from the corresponding accredited medical specialty board.

This was very helpful. Thanks! I have tried every med out there for fibro. As well as a few off label, none have worked for me. I eat healthy, exercise, still no relief. Losing hope

This was very helpful. Thanks! Ok. Guess that one would be if there was a relapse and back to the operating table. Metastasis. A higher divorce rate could be another vs. gen. pop.
