Chavez in good health – doctors

Caracas - Doctors on Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez's medical team say he is in excellent health after undergoing cancer treatment.

The doctors have spoken out to deny a surgeon's remarks about Chavez's condition.

A Mexican magazine quoted Dr Salvador Navarrete as saying that he believed Chavez's prognosis "is not good" and that the life expectancy in such cases can be as little as two years.

Dr Fidel Ramirez is one of Chavez's doctors, and he read a statement on Saturday saying Chavez had never been a patient of Navarrete.

The doctors on Chavez's medical team also questioned the surgeon's ethics, saying he's wrong about the president's condition and doesn't have access to his medical information.
