General Info

About me

Medicine is the profession that allows, by scientific bases, to help a person maintaining or recovering his health. This goes hand to hand with a state of well-being to be able to perform in all areas of life, so it has a primary role.
At the same time, it implies that the lack of health exposes the person to a situation of vulnerability, both physical and emotional. Therefore, offering treatment, guidance and support to the patient and his family through the practice of medicine represents an extremely valuable and rewarding act in my life.
