in Phoenix, AZ |
Dr. Urdaneta has been instrumental in helping my husband and our family through the lung transplant process. Mental health is so important and he helped to monitor and adjust and counsel him through the whole process. My husband was already diagnosed with several mental health disorders and medicated, but through the process of lung transplant everything was monitored and adjusted throughout. We thank him for being the sane calming voice in the midst of chaos.
