There is no direct consultation with the dermatologist, but the human factor does not disappear. Our specialized health personnel always accompanies the patient”, explained the Medical Director of HCB Hospitales, the Dr. Fernando Sanchez Ruano.

They value all the information and the image samples taken and in 48 hours they facilitate their diagnosis, treatment and advice to follow.

In a maximum of 48 hours, the patient receives an answer to his problem", highlighted the Dr. Sanchez Ruano.
