52nd District



I am a 40-year resident of San Diego, graduate of UCSD, and Chief of the Department of Family Medicine at one of our most prestigious local hospitals. I have been voted San Diego County’s “Top Doctor” four times and am the author of a nationally-recognized health care reform plan. I am a parishioner at All Hallows Catholic Church in La Jolla and am married to Laura, a cancer survivor, and we have two children.

Having risen from poverty and homelessness abroad to achieve the American Dream, I am running to ensure that all members of our society can find success through education, freedom, and free markets, not government programs.

As a doctor who saves lives, heals the sick every day, I will work to enact health care legislation in Congress that removes power from government and giant insurance companies and gives that power back to patients and doctors. My plan will reduce costs, slash premiums, and increase choice and competition.

As a legal immigrant to America, I will work for legislation that builds the border wall, ends chain migration, stops the lottery visa program, and defunds sanctuary cities and states. I am opposed to providing benefits to people who broke into our country while our veterans go hungry on our streets.

With your vote, we can achieve real reform, real change, and real opportunity for each and every American who knows a better life lies just ahead. I am endorsed by Senator Joel Anderson, among many others. Please visit to learn more.
