Vallarta Medical Matters Conference Speakers - Part 2

February 2, 2016

Dra. Patricia Garcia

Puerto Vallarta, Mexico - Meet physicians, ask questions, learn about local labs and diagnostic centers, hospitals – any and every thing to do with your health and well-being - during the 6th Annual Puerto Vallarta Medical Matters Conference at the Marriott CasaMagna Resort on February 15, 2016, from 9:00 am to 5:00 pm.

HealthCare Resources Puerto Vallarta, The US Consular Agency and the Hotel Marriott are proud to be hosting some very distinguished physicians as featured speakers at this year's Medical Matters Conference:

Dra. Patricia Garcia attended medical school in Guadalajara and Mexico City. Her social service was done in northern Jalisco. As well, she did a fellowship out of Mexico City in Brazil, the USA, Canada and Spain. She chose dermatology as her specialty because, she says, the dermatology field offers great variety. Through clinical dermatology, there are surgery, dermapathology, immune-dermatology and asthetic procedures. She feels that dermatology allows you to use all of your senses, sight, touch, hearing and even smell to analyze the skin. It offers the chance of setting a long term relationship with her patients. She is happily married. She plays Frontennis and squash ball and she is learning to use the telescope! She says "If the eyes are the windows to the soul, for me, the skin is the window to the mystery of our body."

Dr. Miguel Saldaña was born in Mexico City. He attended medical school in the National Politechnical Institute and did his social service in a very small pueblo - "Santa Maria Atarasquillo" near Toluca. He chose plastic surgery because of the wide variety of conditions that one can work with. He is married with two children. In his "downtime" (which is rare!) he enjoys music, movies and reading. He attends a wide variety of conferences and symposiums to keep up with all of the latest plastic surgery techniques. He says "It feels so good when you can help people through the skills of your own hands." Dr. Saldaña will be speaking on "Tummy Time: Liposuction vs. Tummy Tuck" at Medical Matters at 12:00 in Salon Mexico-Cozumel.

Dr. Alberto Marron was born and raised in Guadalajara. He did is social services in Ciudad Guzman and specialty studies in Puebla. He decided on orthopedics because he says, it is a very objective specialty and that usually, "you know what the problem is and you can fix it!" Dr. Marron has many hobbies but he especially loves music and is the drummer in the band "The Rocktors". He enjoys fishing and driving (fast) sports cars! He says "I love my job because I am able to help people get their movement back….and movement is life!" Dr. Marron will be speaking on "Lower Back Problems - Treatment and Prevention" at 10:45 am in Salon Vallarta VI-VIII.

Dr. Javier Diaz-Nuñez was born in Aurora, Illinois and lived there until he was 8 years old when his family moved to a small town in Michoacan, Jiquilpan. When he decided to attend medical school, he chose the Universidad de Autonoma de Guadalajara, graduating in 1998 and did is social service in Pajacuaran, Michoacan. During that time, he realized the essential needs in Mexico regarding health matters and was eager, but sad to see the lack of basic medical needs that some people could not, or would not, access. He is married and has two daughters. He chose the specialty of ENT (otorhinolaryngology) because it has both medical and surgical aspects of medicine. He says it has been a great journey the past eleven years. He loves interacting with people and assisting them to solve health issues at the same time. He is an avid runner and lately doing some triathlons. He hopes to learn to play the guitar and dreams of riding a motorcycle across the USA. Dr. Diaz-Nuñez will be speaking on "Snoring - Causes, Risks and Treatments" at 1:15 pm in Salon Mexico-Cozumel.
