Alddo Molinar is an anesthesiologist at both the East Ohio Regional Hospital and Ohio Valley Medical Center. Alddo was born in Texas and destined for greatness in his family’s new land of opportunity by becoming a US citizen like all those before him from Mexico who had come for a better opportunity. The future critical care medicine expert and his natural ability to grasp skills and apply them easily sets him apart from other children his age. Alddo Molinar quickly reached many milestones, even those that were more difficult for others of the same developmental level. This was due mainly in part due to mechanical aptitude he developed at an early age.
This allowed him to tackle more complex tasks left dormant by parents who might have been intimidated because they thought their child would never amount. Alddo Molinar was driven towards becoming a doctor fueled by the deaths of his grandmother and grandfather due to cancer. He attended medical school at UT Southwestern Medical Center, where he earned his degree before completing residency training at one of America’s most prestigious hospitals, The Cleveland Clinic. Too much – as if somehow there was something wrong or broken about taking up engineering. Alddo Molinar has had a long and successful career, but his family makes him truly happy.
Specialized anesthesiologist Dr. Alddo Molinar met the love of his life while working at an international hospital in a residency training program for two years – she was just one patient among many on staff who helped shape him into who he now knows himself to be today. Alddo Molinar shares that his favorite memory from those days happened right outside this very building where we are standing: meeting someone so different yet also familiar- finally understanding how much fun cross-cultural conversations could involve! It took time, though; they started by emailing back and forth until finally seeing each other’s faces.
