OVERVIEW

Welcome to my Web page. I am happy to have this chance to introduce myself to you and tell you about my practice. I feel very fortunate to work at Kaiser Permanente because of my wonderful colleagues and patients, and I look forward to working with you to care for your health. BiographyI was born in Long Beach but grew up in Cerritos. I have two brothers, two sisters, and two loving parents. After attending Cerritos High School, I went on to graduate from UCLA with a major in biology. I then remained at UCLA for medical school and subsequently finished my residency training at USC. I love medicine and couldn't imagine myself in any other field. I am half Peruvian and half El Salvadorian. I love traveling, especially to the Caribbean.About my practiceMedicine as a career is a very special opportunity to help people in a meaningful way. It is my privilege to help patients understand their disease and to help them as much as I can. For me, there are no silly questions, and I encourage my patients to ask as many questions as they like. It is my goal with every encounter to empower my patients with knowledge about how to improve and maintain their health. I feel very honored that patients have entrusted me with their care and strive to treat them as I would my own family.How I thriveBesides practicing medicine, I firmly believe in Kaiser Permanente's philosophy of total health and try to live it every day. My family is very important to me. I have a rather extensive family, and I try to balance family time with work time and "me" time. I enjoy our family sport, which is volleyball. I also attend my niece's Little League soccer games, and I try to remain active with my local club soccer team. I enjoy listening to music, especially when I am at the gym. I strive to eat healthfully and plan to take cooking classes to further improve my eating habits. Finally, to round out my outlook on life, I believe that laughter is a form of medicine and we all need to find the time to enjoy ourselves and cherish the moments we have with one another. So smile and let the world see how beautiful your colors are, and I will be right behind you helping to keep you healthy.

Data Transparency and Trust: Understanding WebMD Doctor Listings and Reviews

We know that finding the right doctor or provider is important to your health. That’s why we want to ensure you have confidence in the provider profiles and listings you see on WebMD Care. Our provider data is sourced from the physicians themselves as well as publicly available databases. Any doctor or provider who claims their profile by verifying themselves can update their information and provide additional data on their specialties, education, accepted insurances, conditions they treat, and procedures they perform.

All the physician and provider reviews on WebMD Care are provided by users just like you. Knowing these reviews provide insight into how other patients feel about a doctor, we maintain internal policies and protocols to ensure the quality and accuracy of all reviews. Providers are not able to remove or modify reviews on their own. Reviews can only be removed after an internal review by our customer service team.

We value your input and encourage you to reach out to our support team if you encounter any issues.
