One Star

I wasted an entire afternoon in Dr. Alberto Fernandez-Bravo's office, despite the fact I had an appointment. The most unprofessional environment and experience of my life. While I waited in one of the rooms I overhead Dr. Alberto Fernandez-Bravo arguing with another patient and their spouse about politics. After hours of waiting by myself he wouldn't allow me to explain my medical symptoms. In fact, he cut me off and told me he would give me a chance to talk when he was ready. He had NO IDEA what my medical condition was or how to diagnosis it and told me "maybe you just have some weird virus that you will never know what it is or what caused it". When I requested my medical history/report to forward to another Doctor I wanted to see, he called me personally to demand I see him instead and to tell me "I was messing up his business". He also claimed he would not send the other Doctor my records because I wouldn't see him first. The worst medical experience of my entire life. I would not recommend Dr. Alberto Fernandez-Bravo to my worst enemy.

OVER BOOKED

This Doctor is an arrogant man, his office over schedules him, there for your wait time is more than two hours. He doesn't give you the time of day, if you have a question while he's typing your history of the visit, he'll not answer you. I was schedule for a 2 p.m. visit, I arrived at 1:45 p.m. and didn't get out until 4:30 because at 2 p.m. he passed me in the waiting room and decided to go out for lunch. By the time he got back there was about 6 other patients waiting for him which I found out had the same time appt. as me. He's not worth your time.

WORST run Medical Office

My mother had been a patient of Dr Fernandez for a few years. He is a nice man and a good doctor. However his practice is surely the most mismanaged office I have ever encountered. A couple of years ago it was bad, Now it is unprofessional. His waiting room is overcrowded because appointments are over-scheduled and always run HOURS late. It is not an infrequent occurrence. It is EVERY time. There is NO excuse. Lastly, when prescriptions need to be re-ordered, I get calls from the pharmacist asking why the doctor's office does not respond to multiple requests after 3 or 4 days/attempts. My mother passed away and I no longer have to put up with this terrible medical office.
