General Info

About me

I became a doctor out of my vocation to help people. Medicine gave me the opportunity to professionally be able to assist my patients in a human, integral and scientific way. I specialized in Geriatrics because I truly like working with the elderly. Some elderly people are very vulnerable and require quality holistic treatments to alleviate their needs.

"La atención fue más allá de lo esperado por parte del Dr. Monge. Ante la incertidumbre y la angustia con la que mi abuelita se presentó a la cita, con un estado de ánimo bastante bajo, salió completamente diferente debido al trato recibido por parte del doctor. Agradecida, más tranquila y muy sonriente salió de la cita médica reiterando bendiciones al doctor. Por mi parte agradezco al doctor Óscar, por la disposicion de tiempo, la claridad de respuestas y sugerencias dadas para el cuido de mi abuelita."
