My visit with the doctor was great, but the front desk staff charged me a copay when one was not required. This was an annual preventative visit. Now I have to jump through hoops to get a refund.

Loved doctor Rios! She's very professional & caring. I would recommend her to anyone! The only thing I didn't like, was the front desk girl (the one who check's you in) she always seems to have a attitude. But everyone elseis a joy to be around! Very happy & positive!

Seen this doctor twice of three visits I've been two for similar issues in the last 3-4 months and the answer is always the same. Take drugs and nothing is wrong with you. I will not see this provider again.

She was very sweet and caring but the way she spoke to me was what I did not like. A lot of "aws", I felt like a child. It sounded like she was unsure of herself when she was trying totell me what's wrong with me. She wasn't very careful and didn't take her time to look at my problem. Also her staff made me uncomfortable when I would tell Dr. Rios what I was experiencing, it almost seemed as if I was being judged. I'm sure she's a great doctor for other people, but she's just not the one for me.
