Helping the community is my calling and my passion for healthcare goes far beyond my medical career. As a physician and surgeon, I have had the opportunity to care for those most in need in a very hands-on format. Now I'm running for Congress so that I can have an even larger impact on our community.
...You understand what truly matters. In my medical practice the needs of the patient comes first. At home, as father and husband, I put my family first in my life. As your Representative in Congress, I'll work just as hard as I do at the hospital for you and for our communities to put San Diego's families first.
From being born into poverty in South America, to putting myself through Medical School in California, to becoming a loving husband and father, to becoming the Chief of Family Medicine at Sharp Grossmont Hospital - my path was made possible through hard work and determination. In Congress, I'll fight to make sure that every American has the same opportunities I had, to be able to achieve the American Dream.
