Internal Medicine Specialist in Philadelphia, PA

I was born in San Juan Puerto Rico, the older of 2. Ever since I can remember, I have always wanted to be a physician. At age 4, I was well known among my friends to “cure” their cuts and bruises with various “treatments” made up of leaves, creams and glitter! From a very early age, I fell in love with Medicine and have never looked back.

I attended Medical School at the University of Arkansas, after my family was transferred there in 1991. From there, I came to Philadelphia for my Residency in Internal Medicine as well as Geriatrics Fellowship at Temple University Hospital. I worked as a Hospitalist at Hahnemann University where I was also responsible for teaching both Medical students and young trainees on becoming an Internist. While I found those responsibilities both challenging and rewarding, I always wanted to work in an outpatient setting, caring and developing relationships with patients over long periods of time. It is this aspect of Medicine that I find the most rewarding, and one of the main reasons of why I practice Internal Medicine. I could not imagine doing anything else.

COVID-19 Vaccine

We are pleased to announce that NSIM is partnering with Centennial Pharmacy Services to administer COVID vaccine shots in our office. We have worked closely with Centennial Pharmacy Services for many years and they are a trusted partner.

We do not know when our first doses of vaccine will arrive nor do we know how many doses we will get on a weekly basis. The number of people who want the vaccine is far greater than the supply Philadelphia receives weekly from the federal government.  We are following the Philadelphia Health Department prioritization phases in administering the vaccine. We anticipate it will take at least until the end of May or longer before the city has vaccinated all people over 65, those with chronic medical conditions, and those working in occupations essential to our economy.

If you want to receive the vaccine in our office when we receive a supply:

Register your interest

You will complete and submit a questionnaire. The information you submit is confidential and the only people who have access to it are the staff of NSIM and Centennial Pharmacy. It will be used only for the purpose of COVID vaccine administration and not for any marketing purposes or sold to any other entity. Once we know that we are receiving the vaccine, you will be contacted about an appointment time by Centennial Pharmacy either by text message, email, or phone (depending on your contact preference).


If you have any concerns about the safety, effectiveness, rapidity of development or other issues regarding the COVID vaccines, please contact your primary care provider at NSIM.

Please be patient. No one will be truly safe until everyone in our country who desires the vaccine has received it.  Please continue to wear your mask when outside of your home, maintain social distance, wash your hands, and follow other guidelines from the health department and CDC. Once you receive the vaccine, you will need to strictly maintain these precautions at all times until our public health officials tell us otherwise.
