Very awkward and uncomfortable experience. The nurse didn't know what she was doing and she kept telling me to change into a gown even when I told her I was not there for a gyn annual/pap smear. She also did not seem confident drawing my blood.

Good side: the dr is quick and to the point. His practitioner is very personable and kind. The whole ordeal is always quick and I've never waited over 5 minutes in the waiting room Bad side: I caught the front desksecretaries laughing and talking loudly about my form of payment one time (had to use sisters credit card over the phone because I forgot I had appointment and didn't have the money that day) they thought id gone back into the patient room but I forgot something and came back out and caught them. That sucked. Also They seem to lose my info in the appointment schedule often (I call to confirm time and they can't find my appointment/say my name is not listed in the appointment schedule and then later they "find" it; , has happened 3 times) and it's hard to communicate with the person in charge of prescriptions (I often don't get a call back, or go to pick up my prescription paper at the office and it's not been processed even though I called to have it processed the day before)

My appointment time was at 10:30 and I got there early to fill out paper work. I was let into the exam room at 10:30 and a nurse quickly went through the standard procedures for new patients. Then, I proceeded towait AN HOUR in the room. At 30 minutes, I heard chatter outside the door with a mispronunciation of my name, but it took them another 30 minutes before the practitioner came in. The practitioner was very knowledgeable and had a good bedside manner. Staff up at the front desk is rude. When asked if they could call in a prescription after having it printed out, I was given an attitude with "Well, why can't you just drop it off yourself?" Note that the only pharmacy I can use is in Brandon and it would've been much easier for me to have in called in before I drove. I was told my test results would be in within the week. I called in at the end of the week and after being on hold for about 8 minutes was denied the information even though it was in since the practitioner was not there to read it. Understandable for liability reasons, but when I asked if the doctor could read it when he had the chance, I was once again given an attitude by the staff saying "He's with patients". Am I not also a patient of your facility? Does he not have a single minute between patients? Especially considering that when I had an appointment, I was in the 3rd earliest available slot time and I still had an extremely long wait.

He is very racist and unprofessional. Verbally abuse, impatient, and will bill you nothing, etc. I will never, ever want to meet to meet this doctor again. Last visit was on 06/23/2015 and will be the last visit.

I have been here a few times, at times with an hour or more wait time, other days no wait time. It is hard to judge what to expect for making plans. I tend to wait for a full day offfor this doctor, in case he is busier than expected. Also, I seldom get to see the actual doctor, instead seeing a nurse practitioner or alternate doctor is more common. They are fine, and I have no complaints about their services. Always feels a little rushed when I was actually seen by Dr. Santiago in person.
