“I feel that I have the greatest job in the world because I feel we are truly curing our patient’s ailments in our clinic. We are able to see patients who are struggling with their weight, diabetes, high blood pressure, high cholesterol and over time we see them take less and less medication, have more and more energy and it is the most rewarding job. I want patients who are struggling with their weight and health to know that the issues that face them are often times not their fault. Over time and as weight increases there are complex metabolic changes that occur so that even the most diligent dieters and the most dedicated exercisers can’t get their weight down without help…and they should never feel ashamed to ask for help. I am a Las Cruces native, Spanish speaking, and am passionate about our local community. I want to see the health of our community flourish. In my spare time I enjoy the outdoors, running with my dogs and trying new low carb recipes.”
