Physician Profile


I am originally from the Philippines, but I came to Johnson City for a residency in internal medicine at James H. Quillen College of Medicine. As a physician, I enjoy simply being a part of my patients’ lives. My personal philosophy for treating patients is to listen; by listening, I am able to learn more about the patient and understand what their specific needs are.

I have a husband and a daughter. Outside of work, I enjoy swimming and am learning to play the violin. I am also part of a church choir, the Prayer Makers, in Kingsport.
