Even the wait time is too long, it is worth more than waiting after you meet her. She gives her valuabletime to listen and consults the patient issues in details, which I, being honest, had never seen with other doctor’s office till my visit for the check ups. They are always in rush to see the patients as much as they can in a short periods of time to earn great money. But here with Dr. Ares, honestly I can say that I didn’t see such hurries in her. She tries to give her valuable time as much as possible in full extents to listen, consult, discuss and advise, which ofcourse takes a time. As being a patient these are the most important things that we are always expecting from his/her doctors. I didn’t feel bore or anything for wait time and I will not even I have to wait more than that to meet her and ask details on my issues for the better treatment. I really appreciate the way she treats and checks the patients. It is really worthy even her office takes a long wait time. Thank u doctor and her teams, who are really helpful and professional.

Be prepared for a back up which is supposed to be a LINE waiting to see front desk for ENTRANCE of Appointment or DISCHARGE of patient - I was there on a weekend and it tense watching patients NUDGING for theirplace in line. Not to mention the patients WHO COUGH out loud and don't cover properly. The staff is patient polite yet there could be a clearer way of managing this flow with out regrets because the Doctor after all is VERY GOOD AND ON POINT.

The office has a non working phone and a voicemail that remains full. The staff is rude and the worst part of all is the wait time is longer than 3hrs! I have been there several times and it's always thesame thing. I am not returning to this joke of a doctors office.

Te cancelan las citas el mismo dia sin previo aviso cuando ya has pedido el dia libre en tu trabajo. Despues te ponen en espera para una nueva cita como si fuera culpa tuya. Cuando llamas a la oficina nadie tomael telefono y siempre dicen que el la culpa de la doctora. Ya recibi el cobro por los costos medicos y las los examines que la dra me envio .... pero no he podido ver a la dra para saber que paso. PESIMO EL SERVICIO Y POCO RESPETO POR EL TIEMPO DEL PACIENTE

So the wait time was pretty long but the doctor explained that it was because of new staff. The wait was more than worth it! She was very thorough and very helpful. She didn't make you feel bad about your health(I've experienced that before with other doctors). The medical assistant was also very thorough and had a good procedure in place. The doctor was also very understanding and made you feel very warm and welcome. I highly recommend her. She's on top of her stuff and she's extremely helpful.

Horrible!!! Do not go there unless you wanna spend the whole day waiting to see the doctor! I don't have a problem with Dr. Ares but she books more people than what she can handle. They do not respect time atall. Last time I went, I had an appointment at 4:30, there were 5 people ahead of me, they all went in and then they started calling people who came after me without any ease. I left at 7:30 without seeing the doctor and leaving the office. They didn't even gave me my copayment money back. I haven't heard from them since, and this was about 4 months ago. It seems that they don't care at all. The secretaries are awful...

It is very refreshing to talk to Dra. Luz Ares. She takes special care of you, your personal situation and condition. She answers your questions, explains with details, checks and looks in her computer for examples and information that are importantto you. Dra. Ares goes over your lab results and explains the numbers and anything relevant to your health. In addition, she provides you no only with the best medicine, if you need them, she also recommends you to the best specialists. Her referrals are also as good as she is. My wife and I feel blessed to have Dra. Luz Ares as our Primary Care Doctor. Furthermore, highly recommend Dra. Luz Ares to any family or person looking for a human, dedicated professional who really care for those who need medical help.
