Professional Statement

My goal is to provide my patients with optimal care- for some this may be surgical while for others it may be a combination of natural remedies with medical care. I have completed my undergraduate studies in Biology at Yale University then medical school and residency in Otolaryngology-Head & Neck Surgery at Baylor College of Medicine. This intensive training at the world famous Texas Medical Center led me obtain an extremely competitive fellowship position in Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery at the University of California at Irvine.

My practice covers all realms of Facial Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery including rhinoplasty and nasal reconstruction, skin cancer reconstruction, blepharoplasty and facial rejuvenation. I seek to combine this detailed training and expertise with my interest in natural remedies-cultivated in large part by growing up in southern Mexico. I am fluent in Spanish and travel frequently back to what I consider my hometown in search of alternative methods to help with everything from facial skin conditions and skin rejuvenation strategies to natural remedies for sinusitis.
