Bio

My passion for medicine started when I was a child. My parents used to tell me that the most important in life is to do what makes you happy.
I grew up in Ecuador (South America), and I moved to the United States for medical training - residency and fellowship.
After I completed my medical specialty, I decided to become part of the Medical College of Georgia / Augusta University.
