I was born and raised in Manila, Philippines, where I received my medical degree. I then went to Minneapolis, Minnesota, for my family medicine residency. Initially, I worked in Washington and then moved to Oregon to be closer to family. Having grown up in a family of medical providers, I see this profession as a blessing and an opportunity to provide service and care to other people.
About my practice
I see a wide variety of patients, from those needing wellness exams to those having common pediatric/adult medical conditions. I also enjoy performing simple surgical procedures. I always encourage patients to be involved in the decision-making process to provide sound medical/surgical care for them.
How I thrive
I am a big proponent of fitness. I run a lot and regularly participate in marathon and triathlon events. I also enjoy various types of sports such as basketball, volleyball, and swimming. My family and I love to travel, watch movies, and try out different restaurants.
