No Communication. Ignoring request for Records

Dr. Carlos Espinel and his staff have very poor communication. Waiting is long. No response to getting your medical records. After 3 days and 3 phone calls when I got allergic to a heart medication he prescribed I was left hanging, no return calls. The medication contained 2 things I was allergic to and I should not have been prescribed that to begin with. I was sick in bed 3 days in pain and headaches. Do not recommend him to anyone. Very disappointed

Desde hace algun tiempo, he venido escuchando de parte de amigos y colegas del trabajo, de que el Dr. Espinel es un excelente doctor. El dia de hoy decidi llamar a su oficina para hacer una cita con este famoso medico del area metropolitana de Washington, D.C., para que me hiciera un examen fisico y compararlo con otros exámenes medicos a los cuales me he sometido. La persona que atendió el telefono en la oficina del Dr. Espinel, me pregunto mi nombre y mi edad, al final la Asistente me informo que el Doctor Espinel no atendía a personas mayores de 60 años, grupo al cual pertenezco. Esta politica me parece muy discriminatoria por tratarse de un Medico quienes entiendo, se deben a sus pacientes sin menoscabar su edad y tambien encuentro muy rara esta politica de un medico en los Estados Unidos. Me considero una persona saludable, y hubiera sido para mi muy importante que este medico me atendiera, Pero por las razones de politicas de edad no se pudo. De manera que, no puedo dar un testimonio favorable del Dr. Espinel.

New situation in Dr. Espine´s office

Things have changed in Dr. Espinel´s office. He was my doctor for many years, and was always very caring and courteous, but recently there is new staff who are nasty and rude. This is a great shame because I think Dr. Espinel is a highly qualified doctor, worth taking the time to wait over an hour in his waiting room. Because of this situation, I have decided to go to another doctor because while medical expertise is important, it´s hard to put up with rudeness and office mismanagement.
