I was born and raised in San Juan, Puerto Rico where I completed my medical education and general surgery training at the University of Puerto Rico. As a general surgeon, I treat patients with a variety of conditions, including benign and malignant breast conditions, abdominal procedures such as cholecystectomy, treatment for benign and malignant small, and large intestine pathologies, inguinal and abdominal wall hernia repairs, and many others. The most important aspect of my job is the relationship I build with patients.
