Interest in Form and Function
Dr. Sanchez attributes his curiosity into art, form and function to countless time as a child spent with his grandfather in their wood shop.

According to Dr. Sanchez, he uses these skills from his grandfather every day as a plastic surgeon.
It was Dr. Sanchez’s experience growing up with a mother battling a chronic illness that first sparked an interest in medicine. Observing the daily struggles of his mother and her determination to provide for her family instilled within him compassion, ambition, and a will to persevere. Dr. Sanchez’s early and personal exposure to medicine serves as a foundation to the care and personal dedication given to every patient.
