Comments and testimonials of our most recent patients

Mayra Escobar

“After the surgical treatment of a cervical hernia I can say that I am back to living a normal life. I am very grateful to Dr. Duval Molina for the intervention he carried out.”

“Dr. Duval Molina Choez removed two herniated discs I had been diagnosed with. Before the surgery, I was doing physical exercises with a lot of pain because the hernias were compressing the sciatic nerve. After the surgical intervention, I returned to my physical activities without any pain at all.”
Jean Salvatierra
“I suffered from a brain aneurysm and I had the privilege of being a patient of Dr. Duval Molina, who performed surgery on me. Now I can say that, thanks to God and to Dr. Molina, I am feeling well and recovered. Dr. Duval Molina is an excellent neurosurgeon, you will be in the best hands.”
