A little about me

I grew up in the Dominican Republic. I came to the U.S. to obtain the best professional training in medicine for primary care. I had the opportunity to work in the Bronx  and it has been an experience I would not change. It keeps me connected to my roots and allows me to give my best on a daily basis.

Why I love my job

I love my profession and the opportunity to treat patients as well as educate patients about better health care. I love the continuity of care and seeing the whole family. It is really exciting to see the progression of a family throughout the years.

I am very passionate about medical education and love to engage students and residents in the love for medicine.

Professional certifications or affiliations
