Patient Comments (1)
in Bakersfield, CA |
This surgeon, spent nine hours, in the operating room, fighting to save my husbands life, when his colon, ruptured, and his organs started to shut down. Not only did he save his life, (but even after having to turn him back over to the Dr. that did exploratory surgery, three days earlier, and felt no need for surgery), he still came to check on my husband. I would trust Dr. Enrique's with my life. God Bless not only the surgeon, but also the man. Thank you Dr. Enrique's.
