What made you want to become a physician?

I once worked in a Latin health food store, which was a sort of hub for my community. I became fascinated by the different natural remedies and started to learn more about alternative medicine. I even began to recommend certain vitamins and herbs to our customers, but I wanted to do more to help people. I knew becoming a physician was the best way to do this.

What does a typical day look like at the facility?

Once I arrive at the facility, I’m checking to see if there are any patients who’ve just arrived who need immediate attention. I may also see if any test results came in but if there are no demands right at that moment in the exam rooms, I’ll call and check up on patients that were there the day before. I like to speak with them and ensure they have no remaining concerns or questions. Once this is done, my day officially starts with seeing to patients.
