To my middle age 15 years of practicing, 13 years of being a gynecologist and 8 years of medical and surgical oncology, I had the opportunity to witness life and death, the joy and victory triumphs over terrible diseases, the healing of body and mind, disillusionment and defeat of failed treatment. I have sometimes thought that I have seen everything but the truth is that in this profession, even more in this life every day you learn something new, each and every patient and their families have a different world behind them. There is none like the other. I leave his short review about me with that thought and also with the idea that whatever direction the course of a life is to see it in the most positive way, give the best possible relief, offer the best that can be grant. Thanks to you, my patients, I am a better person because they taught me to see life with humility. Thanks to those who are no longer here because they change every perspective of life making every day a profit. Thanks to new lives because they are the dawn of the morning and the light of each day.
About 37 years ago I was born in San José, a family with a lot of love where my father, a doctor by profession and my mother, microbiologist gave me the example of many years of hard work, perseverance and academic excellence.
During my career, when I studied the subject of Gynecology and Obstetrics, I fell in love with this specialty of contrasts, where there is clinic, technology, surgery, consultation, hospitalization and so much more life, lots of life and this made me choose this path.
My professional work is one of paradox where I see both, life and death. Gynecology Oncology is a very rewarding area where people's lives can be saved, and in those where this is not possible, these women can be offered quality of life, palliative care and support for their families. On the other hand, Obstetrics is that branch of gynecology that gives life, which gives light and being able to assist in the birth of a human being is one of the most noble and emotional acts; So I feel blessed by God to be able to carry out this work.
