Patient Comments (1)
in Santa Fe |
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.
