As usual, my appointment today, 5/28/16, with Dr. Valencia went very smoothly - - I was seen within 10 minutes, Dr. Valencia greeted me in her usual manner - - - kind, compassionate & patient. Another (5) ***** Star Appointment w/ Dr. Valencia. I love this Doctor!! B.S.
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 documentation rather 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.
De. Valencia is an amazing psychiatrist. She truly cares for her patients and takes her time to talk to them and find out the best and safest way to help them. She's very understanding and patient and truly loves her job which makes it a pleasure to be one of her patients. I highly recommend seeing her if you are looking to get better with anxiety or depression.
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. She assured 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!
Alejandra is the best. I can't be more thankful.
