I think Dr. Amalakuhan is a wonderful doctor. He listened to my concerns and he acted on these worries quickly, I’ve had two other doctors and I was never happy. Thank you, Dr. Amalakuhan for checking on my wellness.

I think Dr Bravein is a wonderful doctor. He listened to my concerns and he acted on these worries quickly, I’ve had two other doctors and I was never happy. Thank you, Dr. Amalakuhan for checking on my wellness.

Patient

I have been a patient at the Texas IPS in San Antonio for 7 years, in treatment for my severe sleep apnea. The treatment I have received in especially these last 3 years with Dr. Manica Isiguzo has significantly improved the quality of my life. Using the BiPAP machine and settings that Dr. Isiguzo has prescribed, I do not now suffer from apnea when I sleep. It is a joy to wake up in the morning feeling refreshed, and not to fall asleep in films or concerts in the afternoon or night. Texas IPS has referred me to Alamo Respiratory Services for my BiPAP supplies, and coordinates smoothly my treatment with them. I enthusiastically recommend Texas IPS and Dr. Isiguzo.
