General Info

About me

Between the existential discrepancy of what to do with my life, the decision came at early age. I wanted something in science or art, and what better than medicine; a daily obligation of being up-to-date and face a unique individual with problems. What I like about being a doctor is to find a solution for a problem, the enigma for a patient of having a sickness without understanding what it is, for me trying to find the solution that affects their wellbeing makes my job very gratifying.
