From the Doctor

Over my career, I have moved from South America to California to Texas. Now, I have finally settled down and call Jacksonville home. I enjoy the warm weather and leisurely walks on the beach at sunset with my wife and two young daughters. On the weekends, I attend church with my family. I also spend my free time enjoying music and good food.

My philosophy of care is to treat my patients like a family member. I engage each patient in conversations about their health issues and strive to develop a long-term relationship. I believe that mutual relationship is the key to achieving the best treatment plan tailored for each patient’s needs.
