About Me

Care Philosophy

My approach to patients is essentially the way I would like me or my family members to be treated. I like to take my time, talk to patients, and listen to them so I can offer them tailored treatment to their choices and also to allow me to make recommendations based on what specific problems they came to see me for.

I went into Dr. Preciado's office for the first time a couple weeks ago. I was very impressed by his entire staff. I felt very relaxed and comfortable and they all knew what they were talking about. I highly recommend Dr. Preciado and his staff at Lone Peak Hospital.
