About me

After 19 years of professional exercise in medicine, I still look each patient as a challenge where the goal is to improve his/her quality of life. This requires constant updating. I decided to specialize in internal medicine to achieve a comprehensive view of human beings, which allows a complete approach. Then I made a second specialty in rheumatology, because patients with rheumatic disease require an accurate and early diagnosis to prevent the progression of their disease.
