My desire to provide healthcare to children began while I was a college student at Boston University where I obtained my Bachelor of Science in Nursing. Following that, I obtained my medical degree at the Autonomous University of Guadalajara, Mexico, where I developed the skills to speak Spanish fluently and care for patients of various economic and social backgrounds.
I love what I do and I feel that pediatric medicine allows me to provide quality care in a creative manner. Whether it is talking about the latest cartoon characters with young children or topics as sensitive as substance abuse with teens and young adults, I feel that I am capable and comfortable in meeting the needs of all of my patients.
I obtained my post-medical school training at New York Medical College and then completed my residency at Schneider Children's Hospital/Long Island Jewish Medical Center, now known as Cohen Children's Medical Center, part of Northwell Health. My personal life has been enriched in the most amazing way due to the clinical skills, guidance and care that was extended to my children at Cohen Children's Medical Center.
My impact on my patients spans generations and I am truly honored when a former patient brings their newborn into my care. It is experiences like these that make me happy to do what I do.
