My patient care approach is about using all the tools at my disposal to ensure the well-being of my patients. As a pulmonologist, my mindset is always that breathing is an essential function and, as such, is intrinsically at the core of our health. I want to ensure that careful attention and thought is put into every healthcare decision, based on science and our individual humanistic values.
I am blessed to have a loving family that includes my wife, four amazing boys, and our little dog Nola. We are tight knit and value time together, whether it be playing board games, eating meals at the family table, or taking nature walks. Music also plays a large part of my life, as I am an avid amateur pianist. A group of friends and I have made a local rock band in which we take turns playing in each others basements, and perform at neighborhood parties.
I am fully bilingual, as my parents migrated to the U.S. from the Dominican Republic and my wife is from Puerto Rico. We are proud to call Colorado home and recognize our great state to be an amazing place to live, work, play, and raise our family. I look forward to serving our community for years to come.
