General Info

About me

I became a doctor out of my vocation to help people. Medicine gave me the opportunity to professionally be able to assist my patients in a human, integral and scientific way. I specialized in Geriatrics because I truly like working with the elderly. Some elderly people are very vulnerable and require quality holistic treatments to alleviate their needs.
