    How was your appointment with Dr. Soto?

    Aug 18, 2018
    My mother has been on dialysis for several years and has needed numerous surgeries to replace a fistula, to remove blood clots, and to place some stents because of narrowing veins. Dr Soto has performed all these surgeries throughout the years, and he has been absolutely the best. He has always explained the why, how, and how come in a way that we could understand, which makes you feel at ease. He is very busy, but is worth waiting for. I would highly recommend him as he is truly proffesional.
