I had a horrible time at this doctor's office today. My former PCP recently moved, so I was looking for a new Primary Care doctor. First, no one buzzed me into the office, and I had to wait for someone toleave because they 'forgot' that they buzzed someone into the building. Then, it took forever for them to validate my insurance. I brought the same info and ID cards/etc that I always do and they couldn't find me or validate me, so I eventually had to call my insurance company and put them on the phone with the receptionist. I had already been sitting there for 40 minutes past my appointment time when they told me this was an issue, so it took even longer to resolve it and I waited for a total of 1.5 hours past my appointment time. Since I registered as a new patient, the nurse took me to do the usual blood test, urine sample, ekg, etc., I am NOT good at having my blood taken and almost always faint and get really anxious. That being said, it's usually a quick procedure and I don't normally have issues. I told her this and she reassured me, but then when she actually inserted the needle she started talking to me about all the vein/blood/medical things even though my eyes we closed and I clearly didn't want to talk about veins. It took her three tries to get my vein in my arm, and then told me she couldn't get enough blood and it was coming out too slow. She took the needle out after getting 1 and half vials of blood and I told her I needed something to drink or Id pass out. She ignored me and told me she needed to try my hand to get more blood, and then again couldn't get a vein. She ended up throwing out all the blood she did take, and told me to try again next time. She also told me NOT to tell the doctor this because (her words) "he's rough and will not care if you're nervous). SO then I saw the doctor and holy he was ridiculously unprofessional. It is easily the most uncomfortable I have ever been in situation like that. He did rude gestures when talking about breast exams, wouldn't stop asking me why I didn't have children, how many I wanted, etc.,. When I told him I have a heart murmur he said "oh that's probably because a boy took a piece of your heart". When I said that I'm sexually active he winked at me, and then asked how many 'boys I've been with', and when I told him just one and I live with my partner (so STDs are not an issue), he kept talking to me about kids and marriage and how I have to complete my life with them. Just sooo unprofessional, uncomfortable, and really bordering inappropriate sexual conduct. DO NOT RECOMMEND.

I waited for an hour to see him. I was the first person there but an older hispanic woman was seen before I was. While in there with him, he made a few comments that I felt was distasteful. I willcontinue to go back to him only because he is close to me place and I really just need referrals from him.

I cannot say enough nice things about this doctor and his entire staff. They were kind and made you feel like they really cared. Plus, I am frightened of getting my blood taken and she got the vein on the firsttry (that is big for me!). I had a billing question and the doctor's son runs the billing department and he literally took me from panic to calm with his caring approach. This is the way doctor's practices should be run!

This was the worst medical experience I've had in my entire life. This doctor significantly overlooks leading to hour plus wait times. Also, he uses a very unreliable lab that gave me false positives twice because it was handled poorly. Theoffice staff is not helpful. The doctor is a nice man but ordered blood work and didn't look at it until I called almost a month later. Had I not called in I could have had serious issues were there anything wrong. This is not the doctor you should pick.

I was very happy with everyone. They were professional, kind and friendly. I want to specially give thumps up for the nurse that took my blood. I forgot her name, but she knew I was scared (I hate needles and myveins are hard to find), she immediately put me at ease and she has the best hand ever. I did not even feel it. Thanks to everyone at Dr. Rondon's office. After 30 years of not having medical advice I now have a Dr and his wonderful staff to help me. Thanks MaElena

Dr. Avila-Rondon is a fantastic doctor. The staff is courteous, knowledgeable, and very involved in the community. I've been to many different PCPs in the past, and this was my favorite experience so far. If you're looking for a doctor whotakes time to explain things to you, is thorough, and has a great attitude, you've found it. His practice is phenomenal in every way.

The office manager/receptionist gave misleading insurance information and later tried to cancel a follow-up appointment (minutes before the actual appointment time) based on incorrect information. When I went to that follow up appointmentI was waiting for over an hour. Very unprofessional. Note to ZocDoc: They are listed here as accepting Emblem Health and they actually don't (or so they said right before my second appointment).

He is nice and friendly and the wait wasn't too bad, but he has a very very thick Spanish accent and as I am not accustomed to hearing Spanish accented English, I found it very hard to understand what he wassaying, and you want to understand your doctor! Would probably recommend for Spanish speakers, but unfortunately, I found it difficult to speak with him. Also, I asked him a medical question that I had been worried about and he completely brushed it aside as if what I said didn't matter at all. That was not helpful. Overall, he is pleasant, but definitely a Spanish speaking office/clientele.

He was nice enough, but I couldn't understand his English. He seems to be more proficient in Spanish, so I felt slightly uncomfortable answering his preliminary questions. He did listen to all my complaints, though. Overall, his office is clean and presentable.
