General Info

About me

After obtaining my medical degree, I wanted to focus on a specialty that dealt with children and adults and that offered both medical and surgical solutions. Otorhinolaryngology fulfilled those expectations and also allowed me to focus on pathologies dealing with ears, nose and throat. I also enjoy the using the latest state of the art technologies in dealing with head and neck issues.

"La Secretaria de su Clínica frente al Hospital La Católica me dijo en mal tono que no estaba anotada y cuando le dije que había utilizado Hulihealth me respondió de mala manera que a "ella no le llegaban esas citas". Cuando consultó con el Dr. regresó y me dijo "sí la va a atender", pero no pidió disculpas.
El Dr. no contesto el mensaje de consulta post cita que le envié por Huliheath."
