When I was trying to quit smoking, he was very encouraging. He even offered to let me call him (in the office) if I was "falling off the wagon" so he could talk some sense into me. He has always treated me with respect, LISTENED, and is always smiling and upbeat. Unlike another doctor in the same office. He has always diagnosed me correctly and efficiently, then treated me accordingly.
Dr Loredo takes the time to figure out what's going on, and he's just as likely to recommend self care techniques to stop the recurrence of symptoms, rather than just trying to keep you coming back. A really quality doctor.
