Verified Patient Reviews
First off I would like to say that I did not see Dr. Navazo however I did meet him and found him to be very kind, humorous and professional. I did see the lovely lady doctor there but I cannot remember her name >< grr. But she is the only woman doctor there. It was my first time there, I was looking for a new doctor-that being the reason I had to wait a bit longer, my insurance had to be cleared-.I have to say, everyone there, the doctors ( I think theres three total), the nurses, all wonderful. I was even impressed with the waiting room-actual magazines to read and brochures galore. I went to my old doctor only once and the experience was: NO eye contact, wouldn't answer my questions, no blood pressure was taken, no heart rate-nothing. The nurses were not very professional. Even without this comparison I would still find Dr. Navazo's practice wonderful.
Very friendly and helpful.
Excellent physician who truly cares about his patients. Thank you.
The doctor is always professional and very kind to the patient. Takes his time and shows he cares!
