Manuel F. Corrales, MD, FACS

Philosophy of Care

I believe that communication is one of the most basic and important aspects in surgical care, and that being prepared for the "in's and out's" creates a more relaxed approach and better environment for the recovery of my patients.

    Dr. Corrales did a fantastic job. I've already recommended him to family just after this initial visit. He also came highly recommended to me from my mother in law who has worked with him previously.
