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 Update

If you are sick or were exposed to someone with COVID-19, please contact our office. We are seeing sick patients in the office during special hours in the late afternoon, and we are still doing telehealth visits as well. We can perform both rapid COVID-19 testing and send-out COVID-19 testing at our office depending on what you need, as well as regular flu and strep testing too. Please schedule an appointment so you can discuss with a medical provider what is best for you.

Due to limited resources during the current COVID-19 surge, we will not be performing COVID-19 testing on patients who are asymptomatic and without any known exposure.

If you have been exposed to COVID-19, you should isolate at home until your appointment. The optimal window for testing is 5-7 days after an exposure, but please call us right away so we can make all of the proper arrangements for you.

If you live in the same household with someone who has been diagnosed with COVID-19, you are at a high risk of becoming infected. You should quarantine at home until you can be sure that you are not infected. Please schedule a telehealth visit for specific instructions for your individual situation.
