I am the medical director of the Adult Nephrology and Kidney Transplant Program at Memorial Healthcare System. I treat patients with a variety of kidney conditions including hypertension, acute and chronic kidney disease, end-stage kidney disease, kidney stones, glomerulonephritis, and cystic diseases of the kidneys. I also perform evaluation and management for adult kidney transplant candidates, recipients and kidney donors throughout the different stages of renal transplantation and long-term management.
Prior to joining Memorial Healthcare System, I had the privilege of completing my fellowship in nephrology and hypertension at the University of Miami/Jackson Memorial Medical Center. I also served as transplant nephrologist at the Miami Transplant Institute. I dedicate my energy and expertise to helping my patients in an integral way. I enjoy creating bonds of trust and friendship that extend to their families and loved ones.
I truly believe the healing process involves multiple areas of knowledge and encompasses all dimensions of a patient's life. Aside from medicine, I am passionate about languages, travel and learning about other cultures. With the diverse population in South Florida, my patients have been a great source of education. I enjoy getting to know them and then traveling to see the cultures and countries that they speak so lovingly about.
