Care Philosophy

"An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure" By: Benjamin Franklin. I am a Hispanic senior. I do general family medicine. However, my greatest interest is in the care of hyperacute stroke patients (HSPs). Those that are willing to consent to my off-label neuroprotection cocktail, require periodic stroke scale measurements. I utilize ASA, vit D, DXM, allopurinol, and memantine on top of supportive care in post thrombolysied or non-thrombolized stroke patients.
