I’m the Cardio Sonographer for the practice and have been working for Dr. Turbay since he opened his practice in 2010. I was born in Santa Clara, Cuba where I graduated from Medicine in 1996 at the Medical University of Villa Clara. In the year 2000, I obtained my degree in Cardiology from the same university and worked as a Pediatric Cardiologist in Cuba.
I originally moved to the beautiful city of Juarez, Mexico in 2004, where I practiced general Cardiology for children and adults. Finally, I moved to El Paso, Texas after completing my ARDMS exam to register myself as a Cardio Sonographer, and have been working with Dr. Turbay ever since. In my free time, I like to dance, play sports and above all, spend time with my family.
I’m a Cardiovascular Technician with over a decade of successful experience. I specialize in performing heart and vessels ultrasounds and vein ablation ultrasound guidance.
