Wonderful physician and caring individual

My husband was diagnosed with asbestos lesions in his lung....has no idea how it happened, since he doesn't remember ever being in direct contact with asbestos. We went to see Dr. Flores at the recommendation of our hematologist, as a second opinion. We found Dr. Flores to be thorough, very easy to talk, warm and obviously a very caring person. My husband will now be seeing him annually.

Besides being a superlative surgeon who delivers results promised, he is a warm, caring and a wonderful human being. All these qualities are rare in the world of surgery and even rarer in circle of thoracic surgeons.
