La Palma Salud.
Health care in your home

Our priority is to be able to take care of you in the comfort of your own home, with all the guarantees of health and well-being, and only needing to be sent to hospital if absolutely necessary.

About me

My name is Alexandre de Oliveira, a graduate in Medicine from the University of Seville. I am a specialist in Family and Community Medicine and am a member of the Ilustre Colegio de Médicos de Santa Cruz de Tenerife (membership number 41/17201-7).

My medical training was at the Hospital Universitario Vigen de La Macarena and the Hospital Universitario La Merced, both in Seville. Since graduating I have gained considerable experience as a general practitioner, in both health centres and hospitals. As well as undergoing wide complementary training and continuing in the area of medicine, I also speak Spanish, English, French, Portuguese and Italian. I am currently living in the Canary Islands on the island of La Palma, “la isla bonita”.

I am currently a doctor for the Canarian public health service in Accident and Emergencies, as well as being a practising doctor for patients in their homes. My objective is always to offer residents and palmero families healthcare with a maximum guarantee of quality, well-being and convenience, by permitting patients to be attended to in the comfort of their own homes, and only needing to be transferred to hospital if strictly necessary.

Due to the love of this vocation I have discovered my way of living. On the island of La Palma I have found both my home and the most wonderful way to help others.
