Not a good doctor
Wait time is always awfully long. The office itself almost never answers the phone. Dr. Chavez always rushes my visit with her.
Dr. Chavez has on three occasions tried telling me my pain, and infections were due to mental disorders. She put me on bipolar medicine and antidepressants for pain I was experiencing. She emphasizes that she "studies" psychology and doesn't want to hear your opinions. She constantly speaks over you when you try to explain yourself. Today's visit was about a UTI caused by a kidney stone I've been stuck with for over 3 weeks. She told me it's because of stress. I got up and walked out. I highly recommend NOT going to this doctor unless you want to be told you're mental health is what's causing your pain. Horrible HORRIBLE experience.
I loved Dr Chavez!! I get very anxious before any Dr appt. As soon as she walked in and shook my hand, I started to calm down. She had a great bedside manner, took the time to answer all the questions I had and also had a very pleasant personality. Would highly recommend Dr Chavez to anyone!!
Dr. Chavez was so pleasant, and really dedicated to her clients. She took her time building rapport with me on my first visit . Its really taken me a while to find a great practitioner, and i highly recommend her.
She is the most upbeat positive and nicest doctor I have ever had. She makes me feel good with words and takes the time to listen to my issues.
Great doctor but extremely unorganized front end office and long wait times.
Love the Dr but the phone service is the worst thing in the world. You never get someone to pick up the phone and they never return calls.
She was thorough and took her time with me ? I didn't feel rushed. The office staff is good too.
She seems very nice and helpful and willing to work together Thanks
Very personable attentive and constructive I will be looking forward in the next coming months.
