Healing Hands Ministries

Jorge Avellaneda story

Jorge AvellanedaWhen Jorge Avellaneda needed a physical exam a year ago, he never expected to discover he had a chronic disease.  

Jorge had heard of Healing Hands Ministries from a friend and decided to give it a try.  He came to the clinic for a routine physical and left with a diabetes diagnosis.

Jorge is now a regular patient at the medical and dental clinics at Healing Hands with diabetes check-ups every three months.

“I like that everyone is helpful,” Jorge said.  “I would recommend [this clinic] to a friend.”

Jorge said he has become comfortable with his provider, Dr. Christopher Berry, and likes the treatment that he is receiving.

“I’m getting treatment for my current medical needs, and I’m happy with the way things are going,” Jorge said.

Healing Hands Ministries serves thousands of medically disadvantaged residents in the Dallas community, but Jorge dreams of expanding its mission even further.

“I would like to see it be bigger and continue to help more people,” Jorge said.  “If I could describe Healing Hands Ministries in one word, it would be ‘perfect’.”
