  • “You have to be patient and truly listen. That is how we get down to what is really going on.”

I always knew that I wanted a career that would make a difference in people’s lives. As a first generation Mexican American, my family spoke only Spanish. I saw the barriers my parents faced at doctor appointments. Being a doctor gives me an opportunity to change that. I love seeing the smile on my patients’ faces when they discover I speak Spanish and they can feel confident that we will understand each other.

It is important to me to treat my patients like individuals and make them feel comfortable. Developing a treatment plan is about more than a diagnosis. You have to be patient and truly listen. That is how we get down to what is really going on.

Most of the diseases I treat are long term or lifelong conditions, so building a good relationship is essential. I get to know the patient and their family and we build a trusting partnership. I love working with kids, they are so honest and really just want to get better.
