WHERE I PROVIDE CARE
Profile
ABOUT ME

My interest in endocrinology started back in medical school, when I was fascinated by the endocrine system and realized that endocrinology was my calling. Currently, I practice general endocrinology. I have a strong interest in diabetes. It is my goal, as an endocrinologist taking care of patients with conditions that affect their daily living, to provide the best and compassionate care possible. I strive to know my patients at a personal level in order to be able to help them achieve their goals. In addition to my passion for patient care and teaching, I spend a significant amount of time conducting clinical research. My research interest includes prevention of diabetes, diabetes-related complications, improving patient care and health disparities.

MY RESEARCH INTERESTS

My research focuses on the prevention of obesity, diabetes, and diabetes-related complications with a special interest in health disparities and Latino health. I have been involved in multiple clinical trials including the Weight Loss Maintenance Study, Hypertension Improvement Project, Cellphone Intervention for You (CITY), the community engagement project -- Achieving Health for a Lifetime, The Latino Health Project, Hypertension Improvement Project-Latino, Patient and Provider Intervention for the Management of Osteoarthritis-Latino, and the Duke Employee Weight Loss Study. My primary goal is to decrease the negative consequences of disparities in diabetes, obesity and associated complications in minorities, e specially Hispanics/Latinos. I strive to increase our understanding of factors contributing to these disparities.
