Dr. Guerra made me feel so comfortable in what would be in incredibly uncomfortable situation. She was personable, asked many questions (which I appreciated), provided information on what the exam would be like, listened to my concerns, and provided follow up instructions.

I think they may have forgotten about me. My appointment was 3:30. At about 4:20 after waiting nearly a full hour I went up to the window and said something. A nurse/assistant came and got me not too long after andI asked if she thought I'd be out by 5pm. She was unsure, but told Dr. Guerra that I had already waited awhile so she did come in and see me quickly thereafter. But to wait an hour with a scheduled appointment to be acknowledged by anyone is a little ridiculous. Dr. Guerra is great - friendly and professional - but the waiting with no update and only getting seen after I said something was very frustrating.

The first time I went to the office, I did it through Zocdoc,it was a VERIFIED appointment and yet they said they did not find my appointment at all,and the funny thing is after I made the appointment through Zocdoc Icalled the office and they put me on a 20 minute hold and finally said that they would call me before the Zocdoc appointment gets verified,the lady suggested that I make another appointment for the following week and fill out some papers so the next time I come it will be easier,The next week I came they said they cannot find my papers at all,and they almost was about to tell me to reschedule,thankfully they didn't,they made me wait an hour to see a doctor,and that is not the worst part,but it's too personal,but she know what she did and that was very unprofessional ,I should have went with my guts and just left without giving them my information the first time they made me change my appointment date,I'll be going elsewhere.

The waiting time was ridiculous & really turned me off, specially a morning to middle of the day appt. When people are taking time from work... If the doctor is delayed someone should make a phone call & make the patientaware. That's just taking an extra step to customer service, as things do happen & it's understandable..
