WHAT PATIENTS SAY

"Dr. Pedro Mego saved my mother from having her leg amputated. Previous Dr's that she had seen had told her that amputation was needed cause the area where her ulcer was, was not receiving enough blood flow and this could cause other complications...this is when we were referred to Dr. Pedro Mego. My mothers case was complicated, but not to complicated for Dr. Pedro Mego.. My mother just celebrated her 81st birthday, dancing and walking again...Forever greatful to Dr. Pedro Mego..."
