From the Doctor:
I moved to Florida from Puerto Rico with my cat, Pouky, and love everything this state has to offer, from its amazing and diverse nature to its professional sports and theme parks. In my spare time I enjoy traveling, reading and playing video games with my nephews.
My philosophy of care is to establish a lasting relationship with my patients by carefully listening to their concerns and needs in order to provide them with empowering resources for their well-being. Mental health is an integral part of our overall well-being and providing the right care is of upmost importance.
