Mario Loyola, M. D.

ALS/Dementia/Alzheimer's Disease and Stroke

Almost 76 years old, seeing adults and children with neurological diseases, teaching medical students, have published articles on copper deficiency in brain. I was trained by some of the world’s preeminent adult and child neurologists. Still married to gorgeous Magdalena and live by the sea in Puerto Rico. Five delightful children, very accomplished. Walking without a cane nor the aid of a walker, so that’s something! Love to teach. Mario A. Loyola, M.D.
