Feb 9, 2022
This isn't necessarially the staff problem. I was called the morning of my original appointed and it was changed to be 4 days later. I had already registered for the first one. Upon arriving I was told that I needed to fill out the forms again because it was a new appointment. Re-entering all of the medications and famiily health history didn't change so I think it is redundent.
Feb 8, 2022
Dr. Valdez truly listens and takes care of me. She is beyond professional, she is caring and respectful.
