General Info

About me

Dermatology always stole my attention from my student times at UCR because I believe that the skin is our image. I decided to study medicine because I believe it is the profession that allows me to be closer to people and gives me the tools to understand their physical and mental problems and in this way to be part of the solutions to the path of their integral well-being.
