"Neurological conditions are professional challenges, but more importantly, they are a priority to every patient. That is why every case has to be managed in a way that is unique and personalized and make the patient feel that their condition is also important to the professional."

General Info

About me

Between the existential discrepancy of what to do with my life, the decision came at early age. I wanted something in science or art, and what better than medicine; a daily obligation of being up-to-date and face a unique individual with problems. What I like about being a doctor is to find a solution for a problem, the enigma for a patient of having a sickness without understanding what it is, for me trying to find the solution that affects their wellbeing makes my job very gratifying.
