Have you seen Dr. Mauricio Botero-Velez?

July 9th, 2012Dr. Botero 1000% Reccomended!!
Okay, we need to cut this wonderful doctor some slack. After attending to me in the hospital for 10 days after I suffered an acute renal failure(ARF), getting in to see Dr. Botero was a nightmare! Part of my release papers I signed, and the nurse witnessed, I was supposed to see him within 2 weeks of my discharge. I was put on a waiting list that was about 3 months long. I couldn't do that! Part of the problems were: 1) He is just getting into the Martin Memorial Health System 2)This is the only nephrology office in Martin or St. Lucie Counties, and 3) They are getting up to 30, yes 30, new patients a day!

September 12th, 2011Not knowledgable enough and close minded
Wouldn't listen to me about my history and condition.Had to actually go look something up in his office after I explained it to him.Put the wrong diagnosis on mt chart.I was a new patient, so maybe he thought I didn't know anything. But frankly, treating a new patient like they are ignorant of their own condition and treatment that they have been dealing with for almost 2 decades shows a lack of common respect.I didn't assume he was unknowledgable before I met and talked with him. I made my decision that he was after I talked with him.YMMV (your mileage may vary)...maybe he was having a bad day or didn't like the type of patient I am (very informed).
