He is a very good doctor

I come to see Dr. Marcelo for three years because his treatment is very right to my illness; he is very experienced and smart, and would like to listen to patient's situation and update his treatment plan if things got changed; plus his medical knowledge is very wide. I also introduced my wife under his treatment later.
