Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Martinez-Arraras "I believe in personalized, in depth problem analysis. In involving the patient and his family in the decision making problem. In assessing personal behavior that influences the disease and the well being. In spending time to understand each person, each problem and the best alternatives that can be offered. I share the patients' concerns about the sweeping changes that involve health care today. Thus, I consider myself before anything else, the patients' friend and advocate."
