    Collapse Overview
    I am an author and Associate Professor Medicine at the University of California, San Francisco, where I created and direct the adult inpatient bone marrow transplant massage service. I am board-certified in both internal medicine and addiction medicine. I am faculty at the Osher Center for Integrative Health in San Francisco where I provide consultations in integrative oncology and integrative medicine, and I am chair of their educational case conference series. I teach the “Food as Medicine” CODA series for residents and students at the university. I am the director and creator of the OPTIMAL-IH Long COVID clinic, in collaboration with the OPTIMAL Long COVID clinic in the Pulmonary department at UCSF.

    I was born in Lima Peru. I found my calling to medicine in the remote mountains of Cuzco, while serving the poor for one year as a missionary in the Andes. I have lived all over the world and speak 5 languages, including Spanish, Portuguese, Italian, and French. I am a travel junkie and I love to hike, ski, and spend time in nature.
