When I first started out on my medical career, I wanted to be a specialist, like a neurologist or cardiologist – a big shot! Instead, I became a board-certified family medicine physician, and I LOVE it! I never know what type of patient will come through my doors and that stimulates my medical curiosity and has kept me on my toes through the years.
As your primary care doctor, I will partner with you to help you be as healthy as possible. By having more time with my patients and working closely together in my personalized healthcare practice, similar to concierge medicine, we can help prevent unnecessary emergency room visits and hospitalizations. My patients often share confidential, non-medical information with me that they do not commonly share with their families or close friends. It is an honor that they gave me this special privilege which I will always treasure. It also helps me to understand what’s happening in their overall lives that can impact their health.
Besides English, I speak Tagalog and some Spanish. My special interests are neurology, preventive medicine, diabetes mellitus and cardiovascular health. I like to bike and play basketball (when my knees allow me). I am affiliated with Seton Medical Center, California Pacific Medical Center and St. Mary's Hospital. My MDVIP-affiliated practice serves the mid-peninsula area of San Mateo county and the following surrounding areas: San Bruno, South San Francisco and Daly City. It would be an honor and a privilege to be your primary care physician.
It is important, now more than ever, to have a primary care doctor who has the time and resources to care for you personally and proactively. Watch this video to hear more.
