Board Certified in Obstetrics and Gynecology
I started my OBGYN experience in medical school in Colombia, South America, where as medical students, we were the front line and many times the only ones available to provide obstetrical or gynecological car. With very limited resources learned to take care of patients in a compassionate manner. I then trained as a Family Medicine doctor, during these 3 years my passion for women's care became evident, also during this time I took advantage of strengthening knowledge in primary women's care. After training in OBGYN, worked as a generalist for 5 years where skills in obstetrical care, gynecology and gynecological surgery were fine-tuned. Also, during these five years I served as Chair for the Obstetrics division of Holy Cross Hospital and lead the OB/GYN department at Mariposa Community Health Center.
I believe in kindness, compassion and autonomy. I think that healthcare is a cooperative effort where the patient is an active participant of the team. I am to advocate for the patient, listen to the patient and provide best care.
I came to the US to further my education. After finding my spouse and having two beautiful boys, we decided to relocate in the Washington area to be close to family. I enjoy spending time with my family, traveling, hiking and working with my hands on different type of projects.

Reviewed on March 13, 2019 I think most providers push for C-section instead of advocating for natural birth which is safer for patients and children in general. I understand it's a business and the quicker the case is the better for the hospital. However, I think long term relationships with patients is vital to hospital reputation and service rating.
