Good experience, Dr Munoz has a very peaceful presence about him. I had a lot of anxiety and didn't know what to expect. Routine UTI infections lead me to a ct scan, that found lung nodules.

Dr. Munoz detected my lung cancer at stage 1. If he had not found i would not be alive today. My cancer was chemo resistant and we were able to cut it out before it spread. 6 years ago and still going strong. He saved my life!
