I grew up in Albuquerque so the issues affecting our state are close to my heart. My ultimate goal is to inspire future generations of physicians to practice in our beautiful state of New Mexico. I am determined to help eliminate the healthcare disparities inherent within our state. I believe treatment of autoimmune disease is multi-faceted and requires a patient, attentive, and compassionate physician. I am an identical twin and I have a very loving family. I feel grateful for my life and I am eager to give back to the community that I serve. I look forward to meeting you and helping you on your journey to better health.
When I am not working in clinic, you can find me on the golf course with my identical twin.
