Dr Angel earned her MD degree as a Surgeon and Physician in Colombia,
South America (1997). Her passion always has been to provide the best possible care for her
patients, in a holistic way. In Colombia, she had the opportunity to treat different conditions
effectively using Western Medicine.
During her experience she felt some of her patients could have benefited
from other treatment different than Allopathic Medicine. So, when presented with the opportunity,
she felt very enthused to learn the most ancient medicine in the world, Traditional Chinese Medicine.
Studying the Eastern Medicine, she discovered the wonderful benefits this medicine practice can offer
to patients. She was amazed at how Traditional Chinese Medicine delivers effective treatments for a
variety of conditions.
During her years of school at National University of Health Sciences,
she was exposed to different cases of patients where the Eastern Medicine had to be integrated
with the Western Medicine in order to obtain best results for treatment. She had the great
opportunity to do part of her internship in Cook County Hospital in Chigago, IL. There , she
was exposed to different types of Acupuncture treatment for pain management. Dr. Angel graduated
with all honors as Summa Cum Laude.
Dr Angel works with many Western doctors who refer cases
to her where it is necessary to incorporate the great benefit of Eastern Medicine.
