His thesis was based naturopathic treatments. Dr. Penate arrived in Miami in 2006 were he began working in a private practice covering all types of patient‘s 1 to 99 years of age. According to Dr. Penate, he has had many patients who have been tested for probable causes to their often bad moods and depression, but the test results came back normal. The doctor felt bad for his patients because it seemed like nothing was helping them. However it was not until 2009, when he began to conduct extensive research, that he realized that many patients have physiological disorders which are not detected by conventional tests. Taking into consideration that this problem is real and that his patients needed a different and customized approach, Dr. Penate went to pass training in natural medicine. “Who would believe I did that? Since I started this service in my office I have been thanked more than in my whole 20 years in the medical field. It makes me feel happy to be able to help my patients and have an alternative and different approach when traditional medicine does not work".
Verified Patient Reviews
I wouldn't recommend this doctor to anyone, ever. I have a serious illness for the past 15 years. I knew I'd need to get a referral for the specialist so this is why I came to this primary. When I asked for this referral, he assures me I didn't need one to schedule an appointment not that my pain was that serious. I tried making an appointment with the specialist, and surprise, surprise, I need a referral. I call back to get my referral and they tell me I will have to come back and see the doctor. Mind you, the next available date was not for another 2 weeks. Never again!!

He seemed to be hurrying me out of there and was not concerned with seeing if i had any issues. He asked the questions but seemed to hurry me along. I raised a concern but he was dismissive
Dr. was nice. Exam was quick and he listened to me. Staff was nice as well.
Extremely thorough, took his time to address any concerns I had. Great bedside manners, very friendly. Staff was also extremely friendly and helpful. Best experience at a doctor's office I have ever had.
It was great I really recommend him and his staff very professional
Staff was very nice helped me right away and the office was extra clean and relaxing.
I was all over extremely impressed with the staff and doctor.
Very professional. Took a personal interest in my issue. Asked questions in a manner that was not condescending or rude. No wait. Wonderful office staff. Parking was no issue. Only complaint is I was sent out for lab work but he fit me in for follow up with no issue.. Definitely consider him for your needs whether you are in the medial field or not.
HE IS REALLY CARING AND HONEST WITH ALL HIS PATIENTS, HE GETS ON THE PHONE WHEN THERE IS A PROBLEM AND TALKS TO YOU, I'M GLAD I CHOOSE THIS DOCTOR AS PRIMARY CARE DOCTOR. Great office! great staff, great doctor
it's awaful experience with Doctor Luis. I dont have cancer family history, but he said becuase ur the asian so u have cancer. our annual report need to take a month to get the final. The other doctor only 2 to 7 days. He needs a month. He does not have any patien so do not need to wait.
The Doctor was very friendly and professional. His office staff is not anything like he is, they act annoyed that you're in "their" office,as if you've intruded on their playtime, not a single smiling face was present other than on the Doctor himself. There were 2 other patients in the office, and I observed his staff treated them with the same level of annoyance.
IT was good.
Professional yes, but professional like a salesman. I wouldn't recommend him. It felt like he was trying to sell me treatment instead of helping me. I won't be returning to him for regular exams.
very nice and helpful.
what a top pro!!
