Dr. Rios was great! She remembered details from my last visit, answered all questions, and was prompt with a referral to a specialist. The office staff was great as well.
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.
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 else is a joy to be around! Very happy & positive!

Very pleasant experience! She always has a smile on her face! Great conversation as well. Also, I was seen at 8:45 and my appointment was at 8:30 and I was a new patient intake that didn't finish all the paper work until 8:40ish
I thought she was very pleasant and listened to my concerns. I hope she can help me resolve what ever it is that may be going on with me.
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 to tell 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.
Dr. Rios was pretty awesome! She was patient, and a great listener. I was nervous about seeing a new dr and she was very inviting and made me feel comfortable.
Marita was a fantastic doctor. Sweet and kind.
Very attentive, professional and friendly. Takes the time to listen to patients concerns, and not rushing through patients like many PCMs do.
I showed up a little early and the staff took me back before my scheduled time. Dr. Rios has a genuine concern about my well being and medical issue, and provided several solutions to help me make the best decision.

Dr. Rios was very nice and listened to all of my concerns. She didn't rush like most doctors and she made me feel very comfortable. Her nurse was very nice as well and listened to my concerns. I was a new patient and didn't have to wait that long and that is very rare in most doctor's offices.
Dr. Rios took the time to listen to all of my medical concerns and answer my questions. She discussed options for treatment with me instead of forcing a specific treatment on me. I feel that I have received quality attention and advice the few times that I have spoken to Dr. Rios.

Nothing negative to say about Dr or her staff. Good experience. She listens well to patient concerns.
Super courteous fast
Great visit. She takes the time to listen and provide feedback. Very personable. Addressed all of my concerns. Wait time was about 20-25 minutes, which I expected longer with the amount of patients in the waiting room. Definitely will keep her as my GP going forward!
I'm very impressed with this Dr and will be coming here from now on. The only problem is that the prescription wasn't called in so now I have to wait over the weekend to get my daughters Inhailer which is quite disappointing
The service was excellent the employees were confident graceful and the doctor was outstanding.
Very prompt, thorough, and friendly! Thank you!
My visit with Dr. Marita Rios went really well. She is really kind and easy to talk to and was also able to explain things really well to me. It shows she really cares about her patients and you don't feel rushed at all. Over all, she is one of the best doctors I've seen, if not the best!
I loved how compassionate Dr. Rios was and listened to every concern I had. Her staff is awesome too!
I really liked Dr. Rios and her staff. Everyone was so nice. Dr Rios was so attentive and listened to all of my needs and concerns. My total wait time like was probably 30 minutes, that included lobby wait time. Once I got back in the patient room, the wait wasn't long at all. I highly recommend.
The 1st appointment took over 45 min, before we got seen, but thats only because we are 2 new patients for Dr Rios.. as soon as we squared away the paperwork, the called us in right away. And as a same day new patient, so that really scored some bonus points for me! My kids loved Dr Rios and shes so nice and imformative! We are so happy that we finally found a good dr for our little ones! I highly recommend this dr!
