He was drawn to hospitalist medicine, in part, because it allows him to see a variety of complex patients. He enjoys taking care of all ages and stages and being in the hospital with patients and families is important.
Ignacio’s path to medicine was different than most. He grew up in rural Mexico, where he worked as a cattle and goat herder. Eventually, his family became part of the Idaho community. In fact, he always knew he would practice medicine in the state that gave his family so many opportunities. When Ignacio is not practicing medicine, he enjoys spending time with family, being outside, grilling and traveling.
