When I moved back to Laredo from Fort Worth, I chose Dr. Leo Cigarroa Jr. to be my primary care physician based upon both my childhood experience with his parents, Dr. Margaret Cigarroa and Dr. Leo Cigarroa Sr. (both GREAT physicians), and also because of Leo Jr.'s excellent personal reputation. His care philosophy of treating patients like family rings true. When consulting with him, he treats me as if I am his one and only patient. I trust his advice, guidance, and treatment implicitly.
