I grew up in Miami, Florida and the attended college and medical school in Virginia. I returned to Miami for my residency in internal medicine. I moved to Salem, Oregon to join Kaiser Permanente 17 years ago and I have fallen in love with living in the Pacific Northwest. I am married to my college sweetheart and have two children, both boys.
About my practice
I am board certified in internal medicine and my practice is focused on geriatrics and chronic disease management. I am a strong believer in palliative and hospice care for patients who are nearing the end of their lives. I work half time in administration trying to improve both patient and physician satisfaction.
How I thrive
I love the outdoors and I am an avid cyclist, both on and off the road. I enjoy travel and taking advantage of the local fresh fish and produce.
