"I believe that a family that comes to me for their son or daughter due to a possible cardiac problem needs to receive the best human attention as I clarify any questions and educate them so that we can give the best treatment to their son or daughter. Every case is unique, exceptional, and has to be handled this way"

General Info

About me

I studied to become a doctor because since I was a child that’s what I knew I wanted to be. When I was in third grade, I took a course in first-aid and from then on, I understood my mission and vocation. I felt it was the best way I could help others. What I like about my job as a Cardiologist is giving my full effort to provide the best diagnosis and offer optimum treatment in a human and professional way.
