I am originally from the East Coast and moved to the Bay Area to do my internship and residency in Primary Care Internal Medicine at UCSF. I have worked in a variety of settings , including the Community Health Network of San Francisco and most recently with Kaiser Permanente . I retired from full time practice in June 2020 , but continue to practice Internal Medicine once a week at Marin Community Clinic. I have a particular interest in the emotional aspects of health and lifestyle medicine , focusing on diet and exercise as a way to prevent illness and chronic diseases. I speak Spanish . It is a pleasure to serve the community.
