Oscar Llanos, MD

Specialties

Critical Care Medicine and Pulmonology

"Although diseases can be the same, every patient is different," states Dr. Llanos. He prioritizes discussing complaints not only about his patients condition, but about their lives in general, because an integral approach is often more important than a specific medication. In his spare time, Dr. Llanos likes to read sci-fi books, watch old movies, go for walks and play with his dog.
