He gave me a treatment and in a matter of a few days I already felt totally healed with the medications that he prescribed for me. At all times, I was supported with follow-up via what's app after the consultation, which gave me a lot of peace of mind by being able to check my progress during the treatment. I recommend it without hesitation." Sabrina
