General Info

About me

I became a doctor to collaborate and help people solve their medical problems. My favorite aspect of being an Orthopedist, from the point of view of a sportsman, is to help active people return to activity after an athletic injury.

"The doctor was very clear, caring, asked questions to understand my condition and explained everything that he found plus he treatment he recommended. One of my problems was easily treated, the other not so, but he took very good care of me."

"This is the second time I've seen Dr. Ugalde in the past 5 years. My first experience was outstanding. He corrected a condition I suffered with for 6 months in less than 2 weeks. My recent visit yesterday, he again provided me with excellent service and a diagnosis,a treatment and testing plan that was considerate and less painful for me. Nothing else can be said but EXCELLENT."

"The doctor was very knowledgeable and kind to me. He was bilingual,which was helpful in my case. Dr. Andrés checked my issue thoroughly and spent a lot of time asking pertinent questions.. His treatment was medically sound and he prescribed medicine that will hopefully alleviate the reoccurring problem. I was very happy with Dr. Ugalde."
