About Me

I am a primary care physician at Memorial Healthcare System. I am board certified in Internal Medicine and Obesity Medicine. I care for patients with chronic conditions such as diabetes mellitus, high blood pressure and obesity, among many others. I enjoy working with all different age groups, but I passionately focus on geriatric patients.

I have been practicing medicine for more than 20 years. I treasure the opportunity to help patients heal and provide comfort when they are facing some of the most vulnerable moments of their life

Since most of my patients are living with chronic conditions, I have had the opportunity to get to know them personally through the years. My practice approach is always to respect my patients' medical priorities and advise them to establish a plan to maintain or regain their health. I’m also committed to working with patients' families to achieve the highest standard of care and quality of service.

In addition to caring for patients, I am also an assistant professor at Florida International University.
