What People Say About Dr. Joao Ubatuba, MD
Reply Flag
Dr. Ubatuba performed a triple bypass on me in 2006 - he quite simply saved my life. I followed up with him at his offices in Elmhurst until his affiliation with EMH changed. Always courteous, informative, and genuinely interested in my progress and overall health.
