Ever since I can remember, I have wanted to be a doctor. In nursery school, when the other kids wanted to be cowboys and firemen, I wanted to be a pathologist. I do not know exactly why I was so drawn to medicine, but the fever just never went away.
Fortunately, I was able to get good grades, study at Johns Hopkins and Columbia, and realize my dream to become a physician. As I got older, it became more and more feasible. It would give me a good wage, there were quite a few perks to it – like the doctor loan mortgage which would come in useful when I wanted to finance a home. It really was all coming together. Finding my calling in Plastic Surgery was the icing on the cake. As I enter my 15th year in private practice, it is hard to imagine doing anything else.
With the success I have been fortunate enough to have, I continue to invest it back into my practice. We just expanded to 6000sf last year, expanded our cutting edge ySpa, and this month opened our Laser Center for Latin Skin. The technology we have is the best available for our Hispanic patients, and we continue to serve the community.
Every day I am excited to come to the office and work with my fantastic staff. My patients honor me by trusting me to help them achieve their cosmetic goals. I can honestly say that I give my all to each one, even after seeing over 25,000 patients so far.
I thank those of you who have made my practice such a pleasure, and look forward to serving the needs of the community for many more years.
