Background

Why I am a Kaiser Permanente Physician
Our goal here at Kaiser Permanente is to help you be your very best. In turn, we strive to be the best doctors possible. We want to help you and your family achieve well-being. That’s my personal philosophy, as well, so it’s easy to practice medicine in a system that I believe in. I’m proud to be a member of the Department of Pediatrics here in Oakland. Every one of my colleagues is a pleasure to work with and values your well-being as much as I do.

Why I am a Pediatrician
I chose pediatrics for so many reasons. I love your children. I am privileged to be a part of their lives. They make me happy, and when they are ill, I want to do everything in my power to make them well. As they grow older, I want to empower them as young adults. I want to role model for them, and to let them know that anything they work hard for is possible. I want them to know that their health is precious, and give them the tools to be healthy in mind and body. Can there be any greater gift?

Appointments
I see patients at two different locations. The majority of the week I work in the Salud en Espanol Clinic which is located on the 4th floor of the Fabiola building (4A). All other times, I work on the 6th floor of the Mosswood building in General Pediatrics. When making your appointment to see me, please ask which facility I will be working at to clarify where I will be located on that day. You may also e-mail me with any non-urgent question, or make a phone appointment to discuss non-urgent issues. 

My Story
I immigrated from South America with my mother when I was 4. I remember a time when not too many doctors spoke Spanish. It was my goal to be one of those few who did. It feels great to know that I am a part of 2 beautiful cultures, and that I can relate to so many different patients in a number of different ways. Viva Bien y fortalesca su Salud. Simply put, just Thrive.
