Receptionist is very professional and friendly, she makes me feel welcome when I come. Dr Almoudarres has a great bedside manner and addresses my issues accordingly. I left the office feeling much better about my medical care plan and would highly recommend him.

Every visit was terrible and really demonstrated incompetence in every possible area. Wait time was bad, advice was wildly out of date with [what I later learned are] medical best practices, and the practice was disorganized, so people forgotabout me, left medical devices on me accidentally, and actually lied to me about whether they had gone over post-procedure advice with me. Every interaction with this office has felt like just them trying to milk me for money. I am still dealing with the horrible billing practices over a year later, as they had a DIFFERENT DOCTOR PERFORM MY SURGERY who was not covered by my insurance. Absolute nightmare with no redeeming qualities. There is no situation where I would recommend this doctor to anyone.

I arrived earlier than my appointment and had to wait, which was understandable. However, I wanted past my appointment and the doctor arrived 30 minutes late. Given that, he was wonderful and gave many recommendations, joked, and answer allof my questions. Highly recommended. Next time, I might not arrive as early so I don't wait too long.

Dr. Almoudarres was sweet, patient, & very thorough with explaining certain medical terms & meanings. He also likes to be accurate with your sickness or issue and therefore recommends running tests to be sure of what is on going with yourbody. The women who work there are really nice & patient as well. I am relieved that i found this doctor for my father he definitely put my worries to the back burner after leaving his office.

The doctor seen us pretty quickly, and asked the needed questions, he even spoke a little bit of Russian (to our surprise). So far everything went well but it was only just a consultation.

He was thorough in updating my medical records, since I hadn't seen him in 10 years ! He explained the procedure (done in his office, not a hospital), and preparation. He gave me two prescriptions for my prep, and made anappointment within two weeks. I was finished in about 20 minutes. A good visit overall.

Aside from waiting about 50 minutes to see the doctor, he seemed to take a thorough history,had a pleasant disposition and gave clear instructions for the colonoscopy that I will have next week. He was patient and answered all my questions.
