Dr. Valencia is a very nice and caring person. She really cares about diagnosing her patients correctly and using the most up to date genomic technology to help in doing so. Unfortunately, it was quite difficult to submit my out ofnetwork claims since she insisted on mailing it in, and filling it out together in person. Some of the paperwork was filled out incorrectly, and there is no way I will be able to get it fixed and be reimbursed before the deadline to submit claims for the previous year. Therefore, I would recommend Dr Valencia if you do not plan to use any out of network insurance.

She is amazing. I discovered using her methods that I had been taking the wrong medication for 20 years. I’ve been in and out of doctors offices for mental health issues since the second grade I cannot tell you how muchof a relief working with this doctor has brought. She also addressed nutritional issues and needs as part of a thorough plan of action. If you need help, and have spent decades trying to find something that works- do this. She literally sees me on Saturday at 7pm if I want.

Dr. Valencia is very professional, very patient and communicates well with her clients. She developed a great repertoire with my son (which is not easy to do). Dr. Valencia takes her time, studies and make notes on prior client documentationrather than just glossing over it as some Drs. have done with our case in the past. Dr. Valencia is making a strong effort to accommodate me and my son despite my current financial situation. This shows me she cares about her patients and I appreciate that. Although this is my initial visit, I am very confident that my son will finally get the help he truly needs through Dr. Valencia's expertise.

I was very impressed, at my first appt. on 4/30/2016, with Dr. A. Valencia. I was seen promptly at 3:15pm - (NO waiting time) . Dr. Valencia immediately relieved any fears and/or uncertainties I had about seeing this new Doctor. Sheassured me that she was there to HELP me, and that, in time, she felt I'd return to my former self. Dr. Valencia listened to me very intently, never interrupted, and genuinely seemed to care about me, my health & welfare. Being a somewhat shy person myself, I also relaxed quickly because of her calm, soft spoken and compassionate nature. I would highly recommend Dr. Valencia to other(s),, and I gave her the highest rating. I am actually looking forward to my next appt. with her! Good job, Dr. Valencia. And a big thank-you!
