Dr.Muñoz took the time explain each thing or movement he made, he was sensitive to my pain and talked me through it. Made me laugh and helped to calm me down. It hurt so bad on one side of my pelvis but he assured me that everything would be okay. I screamed, laughed and cried all at the same time. Afterwards, I reached for his hands and he held mine in his, and that made all the difference to me. In that moment, I felt safe, loved and cared for. His team that morning were exactly what I needed. One of the nurses held my hand and soothed me. It was a moment. He was gentle through it all.

Dr. Munoz heard my concerns and provided varies options to check further into my issue. Thanks to his thorough exam, he found a cyst in my ovary which was causing the issues I was having. My previous OBGYN, dismissed me when I presented the same issue 6 months prior. Dr. Munoz has amazing soft skills and explains in detail everything he is examining and solutions.

Carla B.

What I like about Dr Munoz is that he actually comes in before the exam and asks if there are any issues that need to be addressed He takes his time. He’s sincere and genuinely helpful That’s why I live coming to him. I’ve been to other drs in this group and nobody compares to him! I hope he never retires!
