Welcome to my Web page. I am happy to have this chance to introduce myself to you. I have been a pediatrician for 22 years now and am very happy to have joined Kaiser Permanente. I look forward to meeting you. Biography My life has been quite a journey so far. I was born in Venezuela and moved the U.S. when I was five years old. I grew up in Owensboro, Kentucky, and lived there until I attended the University of Notre Dame (as a result, I live and breathe Notre Dame sports, especially football). I went to medical school at the University of Kentucky and then moved to Portland, Oregon, to do my residency training in pediatrics. I remained in Oregon as an inpatient pediatrician until 2003, when I moved to the Palm Springs area. I was in private practice until I joined Kaiser Permanente in 2006. About my practice I am a strong believer in disease prevention, especially immunizations for children. In addition, I am thrilled to be with Kaiser Permanente because of its strong support of the use of medicine based on the latest scientific evidence. I am also very happy to have supportive and well-trained colleagues to help me take care of my patients. For my Spanish-speaking patients, I am constantly trying to improve my vocabulary and grammar skills. I plan on taking a Spanish immersion course to improve my skills further. How I thrive I have made a renewed commitment to exercising daily, be it walking, using the aerobic equipment at my local gym, or lifting weights. Reading, tending my garden and doing crossword puzzles help me with my emotional and intellectual well-being. I love to travel and to entertain friends at home.
