Verified Patient Reviews
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 the same thing. I am not returning to this joke of a doctors office.
She's very very nice ! So easy to talk to answers all questions you may have and definitely cares about you and your health
Aparte de la espera todo bien
I think she is a good dr. She's very dedicated with the patient.
Aunque hay que esperar mucho, la Doctora es muy professional y escucha con atencion a todas tus preguntas. Tambien da muy Buenos consejos para mejorar tu salud
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 toma el 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
I think i finally found the doctor i been looking for.. She's great!!
It was great! Very thorough. It's just the waiting time that I hate and their txt & voicemail reminders is always in Spanish and I always didn't understand be I only speak English.
Everything was good just really long wait to see doctor
La verdad me encanto, la atención fue muy buena y adecuada & con la doctora ni hablar, muy profecional,
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.
Excellent service! Would recommend her 100%
appointment was at 7:40 pm. I got to the office around 7:10 pm. It was 9:20 and I was still waiting for the doctor to see me. I was the last patient and there were 3 patients before me to being seen. That horrible and that's not ok at all!!!!! I really disappointed
DR. LUZ ARES IS THE GREATEST .
The staff is kind. The doctor is extremely nice, and takes time to discuss concerns with you
Dr Luz Ares is a great professional. I highly recommend this doctor!!
Mi visita con Dra. Luz Ares fue magnifica y eficiente.
the staff were so great. the wait was a little long but that was because they were short in staff. i could completely relate and understand because i work in a medical office it happens. but other then that my experience was great. The Dr was so amazing!!
I never leave reviews but Dr. Ares was Amazing!! She made me feel so comfortable and was so nice. She listened to all my concerns and we chatted like we knew each other for years. I left feeling so happy. I've never experienced that before. I highly recommend her!
It was great! Friendly Receptionist. Clean Clinic and have a good bed manners. The Doctor is very good and very thorough.
Dr. Ares is caring and thorough. The wait was quite long, but very worth it.
Dr. Luz Ares is the most compassionate and caring Doctor I ever met. I would definately recommend her to anyone!
The wait time was well worth it. DR. Ares makes you feel as though youv'e known her your whole life. Very comfortable and positive experience. Happy she was recommended!
There was a long wait time but other than that i have no compaints.. Dr. Arez is a good docter
La espera es muy larga aveces hasta 3 horas.
I am really satisfied the Dr took her time to explain every concern I had about my health. She order test that my old Doctor has never requested me to do. I was so please to see that she just don't prescribed you with medication with out seen your test results. So far o think I have selected a good Doctor, they are very hard to find
I'm so lucky to have found her. Very thorough and explained each lab results for my tests.
Dr. Ares was great listening and answering all my questions. She show she cares for your health and well being. She is sending me for some test and we will follow upon the results of those. Im so happy I found a preventive doctor that cares.
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 important to 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.
Visit was good and help me with concerns about my medical condition.
Dr.Ares was very kind and informative. I felt at ease as soon as I stepped in her office.
She is amazing, she listen to patients problem very carefully and discuss briefly on every aspects. Such a nice woman. Me and my husband liked her instantly.
I Have to wait 3 hours to see this doctor when I told the doctor about it her answer was the so offensive to me ....she said it was the computer system .Some of the staff are unpleasant like this Colombian woman called Melisa she is the worse I WOULD NOT RECOMMEND this doctor .I complain with my insurance about it .Doctor luz should do something about HER STAFF
the wait can be long but she is a great doctor and very attentive
The doctor was caring and took her time with me
I really like Dr.Luz ares she was very kind and amicable,
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 at all. 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...
La Dra Ares es excelente profesional y muy buena persona, la recomiendo 100%
Everything is great except the wait time. Even though I made appointments, I waited for more than 2 hours during my 1st visit and over an hour during my 2nd visit.
Muy profesional agradable atención calificada muy buena!!!!
I loved Dr. Ares. She is an amazing physician. The office is very attentive.
Best doctor ever
Dr. Ares is a lovely and professional doctor. Her nurturing ways make anyone feel better.
Dr. Ares is the most caring Doctor I ever had in my life. She cares about your well-being every step of the way. Her bedside manner is of excellence; always with a smile on her face. She actually spends time going over your well-being.
I thought she was kind and professional. But also straightforward about my issues.
My visit was excellent. I was able to talk to Dr. Ares about my health problems. As usual, she listen to me and offered me her effective medical advises.
*Amazing* bedside manner, wait times are absolutely ridiculous. Despite filling out the paperwork online, I still had to fill it out on paper at the office. Despite doing that, a member of their staff had to VERBALLY review the same questions, and then some, and input my answers into a computer, a process that took at least 30 minutes and included lots of mental health related questions. From start to finish, my entire visit took 2 hours and ten minutes. Dr. Ares readily admits she is more concerned with treating her patients thoroughly than quickly (despite arriving on time, I was told 3 patients were ahead of me), but surely there is a middle ground? I really liked her, but patients need to be aware of the extra time that is necessary when visiting her.
The medical assistant was incompetent. She recorded an incorrect weight for me which resulted in my stats having me as obese. My height wasn't even taken (this was an annual physical visit). The weight was ridiculous and a copay was collected which I'm almost positive there's no copay for a well visit.
Just excellent, so professional and understand all my worries
She is a great doctor and a person as well. I am glad to move from my previous PCP to her.
I am very satisfied with Dr. Ares she is very professional but at the same time very caring. Her staff is all very professional but still very friendly and helpful. I have and will continue to recommend Dr. Ares,she is a great doctor!
Dr. Ares is professional and friendly. She helped me feel comfortable. I am confident that she understood my needs, offered me her full attention and medical advice.
I absolutely loved Dr. Ares! She listened to and addressed all my concerns. She takes her time, but also gets to the point of your visit. She is very knowledgeable, patient, and sweet. I felt extremely comfortable with her and satisfied with my visit.
La Doctora es una excelente profesional y una una persona muy humanitaria que siempre esta dispuesta para sus pacientes,Dios la bendiga siempre
I think Dr. AREZ is an excellent Human being and Professional. I'm so glad to have her as a Primare Care Physician, I trust on her. She's so busy and dedicate with every patient, she's compassionate and exactly. She behaves as a friend. Others Physicians don't want to have the patient more than 3 or 5 minutes.
The wait killed me I was there for 3 hours I hate ZOC doc!!!!! I am telling everyone this website sucks!!! It's offical
Love her , she is very helpful and gives the best advice ever , Highly recommended
She was awesome, very kind. :) Happy with my visit.
This is really bad I really had stupid ZOC DOC!!!!!!!!!! And I would so put a complain this is not the first time and other people, friends family had complained!
Muy buena es mi doctor por muchos años me encanta
I love the doctor. She is awesome. The negative are the people in the front desk. There were three people ahead of me before I could announce myself to the receptionist. She was having a personal conversation on the phone while we waited for her to finish. The doctor needs us to come to the office in order to have a business and these ladies need us too in order to have a job. More training is needed for these people.
Is always a pleasure my visit with Doctoe Ares she is wonderful.
Dra. Ares is like a medicine for me personally. My visit with Dra. Ares was, and has been always very important for me and my health. She takes all the time necessary to accomplish her patients needs. Me and my daughters ( her patients too) are completely satisfied with Dra. Ares as our PCP Great doctor. I'm happy to be her patient.
I have been a patient of Dr. Arez for ten years. She is a person who listens to his patients and is also very compassionate.
Appointments never start when they say they would. The receptionist are rude when you ask why its taking so long. I like that when you actually get to see the doctor she explains the delays, but I would love it if the nurses watched their manners sometimes - everyone's job is stressful sometimes! Also, someone I know called to get an appointment because she has a lump on her breast and the nurses where very rude, they did not care that it was an emergency and gave her an appointment at the end of August - she called the first week of July and she's still looking to try an find medical help elsewhere!
I did think the same as usual: excellent service, good treatment, and good medicine.
very great doctor. She is very detailed about her examination. Any questions she will answer. Staff is friendly. Very well kept office. Very happy I choose Dr Luz as my pcp :)
