Dr. Trujillo is likely the best doctor I have encountered in my 49 years of living. He is a very good listener and is extremely intuitive. He takes his time and you never feel rushed or ignored. He knows his stuff and I don't trust people lightly so that is huge compliment. I have only seen him twice in my life and the first time was 10 years ago and the second time was today. He was the same as he was 10 years ago and between both appointments I've referred many people to his practice. He takes something that can be scary and breaks it down and makes it more palatable for the common folk. You leave his office feeling confident and heard.

Dr. Trujillo is outstanding. He is incredibly approachable and friendly. He was willing to take the time to listen to truly understand my situation and then shared his medical expertise in an easy to comprehend way. It was truly refreshing compared to my experiences with other doctors.
