« I want patients to take control of their health »

Dr. Guedes knows what it is like to be a foreigner somewhere, having studied medicine in the Czech Republic and Latvia. In the Guedes household, being a doctor is a family affair, as his father is also a doctor. Duarte likes to see people get better. He is particularly interested in pain management, sports-related injuries and illnesses, and minor procedures.

Duarte sees Alegria as the “centre saude for foreigners”! His positive personality fits perfectly with the atmosphere of the centre.
