Becoming a physician is a daily lesson in humility and perseverance. Its not only the more than a decade of higher education and sacrifice involved, it is the daily commitment to pursue excellence. I am passionate about working to improve and better the lives of my patients and community.
My approach to patient care is holistic, family and community centered. Patients and the kids keep me going. I am and always will be an advocate for kids and patients who are unable to speak for themselves. This ability to use my practice as a tool for helping others in their day-to-day lives, as well as in their healthcare journeys is an important part of my work.
I was born and raised in Los Angeles, and I went to high school in Rancho Cucamonga, San Bernardino county. After medical school and training I wanted to come back and serve my community. The future of our underserved communities depends upon our daily choice to edify and uplift our kids.
Everyday I am reminded that learning is the most important part of my job, whether it be learning about my patients or the situations happening inside the community. Through my service I have recognized it is important to provide healthcare to all people no matter the age or background, but it is very crucial for my younger patients.
I believe all people should have access to healthcare. I take pride in being the Medical Director here at CNHF mainly because we for the most part do not have to worry about the insurance status of our kids. I will always do my best to serve all of our patients, and community.
While working in the community hospital I get to see lots of newborns— I see the joy, hope, and love a newborn baby can bring to a family and community. It’s these everyday emotions that I get to experience in our neighborhood that make my work amazing and humbling.
Same as many of my patients, my parents immigrated to this country to find a better life. They and America have provided the opportunity for me to pursue my passion and calling as a Pediatrician. I believe this can serve as proof that anything is possible for our neighborhood kids.
