Verified Patient Reviews
He was thorough and professional. His assistant (and the front desk staff) were very nice, and the office is attractive. I will use him again.
The staff was not the kindest. Not rude, but kind of off. Price for service was kind of high.
I was very pleased. Everyone was polite and professional.
Dr. Contreras was very professional and knowledgeable. I was a cash pay patient and he gave me a discount and did not try and push extra tests on me which I appreciated. I would definitely recommend him.

Highly professional and pleasant.
The wait time was lengthy but I believe they had an emergency that needed to be handled.
Dr. Contreras appeared to be very thorough in his examination (more so than previously experienced elsewhere). His comments throughout the exam were helpful, as were his recommendation for follow-up.
Majority of staff were exceptionally professional and friendly; Dr.Contreras was knowledgeable, caring, and a great listener!
Very efficient and took care of my problem during the same appointment. Worth the small wait (they were recovering from a power outage due to flooding).
