What People Say About Dr. Hector Ventura, MD
Reply
Dr. Ventura is a very intelligent and kind man. He listened very attentively to my concerns and questions and gave me all the time I needed. This was refreshing as most western doctors are dismissive and herd you in an out like cattle. I trust the recommendations he gave and I highly recommend him!
