General Info

About me

I studied General Medicine by vocation; I always knew this would be the path I would pursue as career. I leaned towards the area of otolaryngology because I love this specialty and it’s the one I like the most from all the existing ones. The aspects I enjoy about my practice are rhinosinusology, endoscopic sinus surgery, nasal plastic surgery and laryngology, among others.
