It has been since 1997 that I wish I would have left a comment for Dr. Paz. Technology was not there uet. This doctor saved my life after being a victim of violence attributed to the many life traumas I was experiencing. I hope to some day reconnect with him to give the thanks in person. My second chance in life has led me to a career in the Probation field to help those who come into our system receive a second chance or be diverted from our system and not come into it at all. I could literally write a book about my story which I have started and many times but never follow through to finish. Maybe some day. In short. Gracias Dr. Paz for giving me a second chance at life which has giving me so many blessings.
