As Doctor Jimmi Rios was growing up in his native Cuba, at an early age he went to work daily in the farm fields before going to school. Still today it is the law of the land. Cuba is a communist country that for decades has deprived its citizens of the freedom that other countries have, especially the freedom that we all enjoy in the United States.
Mega Doctor News is proud to present to you a featured story about Dr. Rios, an Obstetrician/Gynecologist. He is a man that has sacrificed himself in order to make a better life for his family. When he decided to migrate to the United States, the Cuban government prohibited his wife and three-year-old son to travel with him. For that reason he was separated from his family for six years but as soon he got the chance he brought his family to the U.S.
In Cuba, he was already all he could be as a medical doctor, but the freedom of success ended when he graduated in Cuba. Dr. Rios continued to work at the National Institute for Oncology in Cuba until 2005 when he decided to leave to pursue a medical career in the United States.
