Testimonials From Becky Alonso

My sister and I had surgery with Dr. Cabrera on 1/13/14. I just wanted to let you know how wonderful our experience was. Christy was our coordinator, but to be honest I spoke to Cindy all the time. Cindy went above and beyond for us. She kept us at ease the entire time. I just wanted you to know she is an asset and was a joy to work with. Regards, Becky Alonso
