Apr 20, 2022
I had been struggling to find a good nephrologist and found Dr Lerma. I hit the jackpot! He is a great doctor and so pleasant and very easy to talk to. We have developed a great report. He may be my favorite doctor. I would recommend him to any one. And best of he has a great personality and bedside manner.
