In school I’ve achieved the “Clinical Excellence Award” and inducted as a member of Phi Theta Kappa. These achievements have inspired my meticulous work and dedication to give all my patients the best quality care. I have been working with Dr. Tanpiengco since 2001. Working for Dr. Tanpiengco has been both rewarding and a blessing. Since Dr. Tanpiengco enjoys spending quality time with his family, and is a “family man” he has given me the privilege to be able to also spend quality time with my family as well. In my spare time, I enjoy shopping, dancing, and supporting my daughter in softball tournaments.
