I have been under the care of Dr Padilla-Paz for 9 years. In 2009 I was diagnosed with Stage IIIC Ovarian Cancer, a rather daunting diagnosis. He has taken care of me since in a kind and compassionate way. I trust him and thank God for his skills.

Dr. Padilla is a compassionate physician. He takes the time to explain a medical condition and the options for treatment. If his schedule is running late he takes the time to be apologetic and reassures me I am not forgotten. I believe he is very gifted and has chosen the avenue of medicine he is appropriately suited for.

Dr. Padilla took time out of his busy schedule to meet with us in between surgeries. I had another operation scheduled and desperately wanted his opininon. He was very attentive and personal. He explained every option and for the first time made my diagnosis of cervical cancer feel as if I was finally in the right hands. I trust him and am very grateful for the recommendation made by a client and friend.
