Caregiver Profile

Meet Dr. Luis Guillermo Quinonez

Luis Guillermo Quinonez | Publications

I treat patients and families as I would want to be treated. I believe in the value of an unhurried discussion before surgery to gain mutual trust. I know I can’t take the stress away, but I can provide information and understanding. I hope my background and ability to speak Spanish will help some patients feel more at ease. Finally, I believe everyone should have access to healthcare.
