About Me

Why I chose to pursue a career in healthcare:

My father was a public servant for several years in my native Ecuador, and since then my desire to follow his steps was born. Many streets, highways, buildings, water plants have his imprint. In the same way, I chose to leave my mark through Medicine.

What I want my patients to know about me:

I will do my best to attend and resolve your problem. Under no circumstance will I quit, and will be with you all the way until I can provide a solution to the problem you came to see me for.

What I do when I'm not seeing patients:

I enjoy my family, reading and long distance running.
