Me recomendaron al Doctor y acudi buscando una segunda opinión, pues aunque ya estoy operada de ambas rodillas, continúo con un dolor que me limita mis actividades diarias y me mantiene muy triste. Me escuchó con mucha atención, me realizó placas, me observó caminando y me dio sus recomendaciones profesionales. El staff fue muy atento desde el momento mismo en que llamé para obtener una cita. El tiempo de espera fue minimo. Me siento muy comlacida y recomiendo favorablemente al Dr Meléndez
