Dr. Eguia saved my father's life last summer. Several doctors had no idea what was wrong with my father for several months as my dad became more and more sick., and was in and out of the hospital. He was near death when Dr. Eguia took on my father's case. He discovered that my dad had an infection called MAC. He is still treating my dad, and my father has made a remarkable recovery. My family and I thank God for Dr. Eguia because he saved my dad's life!

Refuses to treat patients with Cigna OAP insurance. Anyone with this plan should beware.
