He is fluent in Spanish as well as English. He earned his medical degree from Universidad Autonoma de Guadalajara. He completed his residency at the University of Connecticut Health Center and furthered his medical training with a fellowship in diabetes and endocrinology at Oregon Health & Science University in Portland, OR.
