"El doctor se interesa de manera integral por el estado del paciente, lo cual, es muy importante para quienes consultamos con un Endocrinólogo, pues no se trata de cumplir el plan alimenticio o tomar los medicamentos, sino en cambiar nuestro estilo de vida. Muchas gracias."

"Es un profesional que explica con total claridad todos los aspectos para que el paciente, que no tiene conocimientos en medicina, pueda entender los temas que se discuten, inclusive, busca apoyo en imágenes de Google, para ilustrar lo expresado. Es una persona de un trato sumamente agradable y que está dispuesto a escuchar lo que el paciente le tiene que decir, aspecto que no muy frecuentemente se encuentra en profesionales de la salud."
