it was everything i needed at the time, he adressed all my concerns and suggested even more and has followed up on myself with these concerns and has made other appointments for me.
Less than a year agoby a Verified Patient
I was very disappointed with my visit - it was my first one and unfortunately, it will be my last. I waited for an hour (literally) to see the doctor and he only spent 15 minutes with me. He was not interested in establishing a rapport at all. I actually spent more time with his nurse who while semi-cordial, seemed to be rushing to get me out the door just like the doctor.
On the website it is advertised this doctor speaks Spanish - that is incorrect; he understands the language but does not speak it, instead you have to communicate with him through his staff and nurses which is not what I was expecting.
He does have a lot of staff who speak Spanish and are attentive but this is not enough when one is looking for care from a professional medical doctor. As a woman looking for a trustworthy, professional Spanish-speaking doctor, I know I will not be going back. I was looking to share intimate, personal medical concerns instead I was rushed out the door by personnel who did not seem to care much for me, it was depressing and unwelcoming.
