My Philosophy and Approach to Wellness...

In Primary Care, the physician is your partner in achieving good health. We will work together so I can guide you and offer recommendations on how to obtain your health goals, but it is up to the patient to implement the plan. I believe that at any given age, you should know how well you are doing health wise, and not just go by how you feel. That’s why it is always important to get a comprehensive health exam every year.

In my MDVIP-affiliated practice, the main building block is the personalized approach I take with each individual during their wellness exam. In order to prevent disease, I have to care for the patient as a whole, and not just review the laboratory results. Special areas of interest to me are high blood pressure, diabetes and high cholesterol management. As a native of Puerto Rico, I am fluent in Spanish.
