Their Story

For several years, Fernando worked in primary care and preventive medicine, treating patients of all ages in acute and chronic settings. While he greatly enjoyed working with patients, he was not fully satisfied, and he became interested in providing other types of care and treatment to the people that required it. Consequently, he decided to specialize in a different approach with Functional Medicine, which allowed him to become acquainted with a more comprehensive and integral way of working with patients and practicing medicine. He has also been influenced by other physicians in the Functional Medicine field, in which he has received continued education for many years. He feels truly blessed to be able to work with patients and, together, find the best way for them to achieve optimal health.
