Dr. Junior Macias Madaula was in high school when he discovered his passion for healing. He became interested in anatomy and physiology and decided to dedicate his life to practicing medicine. His family helped influence his decision to work with seniors.
“I was raised by older adults,” Dr. Macias Madaula says. “Living with my great-grandmother and grandmother, who is 90 years old, made me appreciate the frailties of the human body. It fulfilled a deep commitment to practice medicine in a special way— one that can improve the conditions of seniors by providing care that relieves suffering, improves functional ability, promotes health and well-being, independence, and overall quality of life.”
