First visit. The place was a little sketchy I wasn't sure what was happening because there's no receptionist and when you call the person who answers just says hello... Very weird but Dr. Caesar was great. Most thorough I've had anymedical professional be. Will be seeing him again for a follow-up soon.

To be quite frank, this was by far the WORST experience I’ve ever had, in or out of the medical profession. Upon arrival, there was no receptionist/assistant, and appointments were running very late. I had to knock on Dr. Cesar’s officedoor, 40 minutes past my appointment time to even alert him that I was there (and then the next patient had to do the same during my appointment.) I was then aggressively, verbally attacked by the previous patient, in the waiting room for “invading medical privacy, etc,” by knocking on the door. Dr Caesar did not do ANYTHING to relieve the situation, and his only comment on the entire situation was “she’s never done that before.” However, i was so shaken that I could barely speak. He was then extremely slow at gathering my information. He was more interested in making small talk conversation rather than staying focused on my exam, even after I asked him to focus, as we were all running extremely late. He spoke so quietly the entire time I was with him, that I could barely hear him from just across his desk. I had to ask him to repeat himself quite a bit, but never tried to speak loud enough for me to hear. Instead, he spoke to me as if I had never seen a Dr before in my whole life. After every medical history answer I gave him, he made faces as if he was disappointed, overly concerned, or condescending. I will absolutely have to go to another dr to for a solution to my problem, because I had such difficulty hearing him and understanding his diagnosis. The entire appointment was unnerving, and I would NEVER recommend Dr. Cesar, or his office.

Great listening skills, paraphrasations of questions and answers to make absolutely sure, that chief complaint is noted and elements are treated. Dr. Caesar is a magnificent medical gatekeeper and knows internal medicine. Great doctor.

So i went to him for dermatology but he referred me to another dermatologist because my issue was not his specialty, and he adv me that being a PCP was. Just so happens I have been searching for a good primarydoctor for almost two years and I asked him if he was able to do a physical for me instead and he was. He is an amazing doctor and very personable and super courteous.

Dr. Caesar was by the far the best doctor I've seen. He made me feel extremely comfortable and was more thorough than I've ever had a medical professional be. He asked questions that led to the root of my concerns anddiagnosed accordingly. He genuinely cares about his patients and their well being and that shines through. Dr. Caesar is the BEST.
