I was born and raised in New Jersey but have lived in SF for almost 30 years. I worked in medicine as a Medical Assistant and then a Physician Assistant before becoming a doctor. I first worked at Maxine Hall when I was a medical resident and returned after graduation. I became the Associate Medical Director in 2014. I love caring for our amazing patient population and supervising our great staff.
I speak medical Spanish, but I am not fluent.
