Joan Sanchez de Toledo
Since starting my professional career, I have been dedicated to caring for critically ill patients with congenital and/or acquired heart diseases. My special interest has been to improve the quality of life of patients with heart diseases, without forgetting about their family. We cannot be satisfied with what we see around us even if we think it is what is best. There is always someone who can help us improve.
