Dr. Iglesias is a gift to humanity! He's a real doctor in the truest sense of the word and he's absolutely wonderful! One of the best doctors that I've ever known! He finally diagnosed my illness, it took over 50 years! He was the only one that finally connected all the dots! He's an expert in his field & he really cares about his patients. He's kind & compassionate and spends ample time with his patients. You'll never feel rushed, since he spends as much time as needed to explain everything.
