The doctor is sweet and calm but not very focused. I was written the wrong vaccination to receive and when thenurse who was about to administer it at a different location told me and him he acted as if it was no big deal. I’m not ok with a doctor who doesn’t care enough about his practice to make sure he’s giving the correct medication to a patient.

Doctor Garcia-Sanchez was great. I am looking forward to having him as my primary care physician. He was very prompt, attentive, and thorough. The doctor personally administered all aspects of my physical including an EKG, bloodwork, and flu vaccine. I was comfortable and did not feel rushed or dismissed at all when asking questions or describing symptoms. Front desk staff was friendly and attentive and facility was also clean and tidy.

Fantastic. My appointment began on time and he greeted me personally. He took the time to address my concerns and symptoms as well as to make sure I was comfortable with all the information. He made sure to ask if I had additional questions and laid out a game plan of next steps if I didn’t see improvement. He talked to me about a great discount program for prescriptions, that’s free, plus sent me a link for the ones he’d prescribed me after he called in the script for me. Great experience, I’m very happy.
