Dolores’ goal of providing life-affirming care and a motivation to ease the anxiety and suffering of her patients has led her to develop an extensive and varied background in adult-gerontological acute care, vascular surgery, and family healthcare. She is also the Executive Director of Bella Primary Care. 

Before completing her Advanced Practitioner credential and completing a post-grad fellowship in outpatient vascular surgery, Dolores worked for 11 years as an Acute Care registered nurse serving the underserved both locally and in rural Nigeria and Gabon, and seven years as a perioperative nurse in vascular surgery. In addition to her medical training for Acute Care Nurse Practitioner at the University of San Francisco, she also holds a BS in Nursing from Samuel Merritt University and a BA in Psychology from the University of California Berkeley.
