Excelente dr!. Trato a mi hija por una infección de una bacteria que se llama Clostridium Difficile y que no había podido ser curada en México. Le realizo un transplante de Materia Fecal, después del cual ella ha estado sana y creciendo. Muy agradecida!

Best doctor ever! He had a whole new look at my child's problem. I've seen several GIs before him and only he was able to correctly diagnose my son
