I am a Pulmonary and Sleep specialist. I have been in practice for 20 years.

Work Experience

I have worked in Miami, Florida for the past 20 years but has recently (August, 2019) relocated to Irvine, California due to family reasons. In my private practice in Miami, I was an active pulmonary staff in the following hospitals: Mercy Hospital, Saint Catherine Rehabilitation Center, Villa Maria Nursing Center, Aventura Hospital, and Northshore Medical Center. I was interpreting sleep studies for some of these hospitals. I also had a strong outpatient experience dealing with an average of 30 patients a day.

I am very well versed with electronic medical records, eprescribing and electronic charting due my involvement with different hospitals. In my office, I used Allscripts and E-clinical works. For hospitals, I used Meditech, Cerner, MD ops, and Patient Keeper.

I did a full year of Sleep Medicine Fellowship and I am certified by the American Board of Sleep Medicine. My practice consisted of 60 percent Pulmonary Disorders and 40 percent Sleep Medicine.

I speak English, Tagalog, Spanish, Fuk yen and conversational Mandarin.
