Medical office terrible
Self-verified patient of Dr. Desiderio Avila Jr - Posted on July 21st, 2016
We are here at Dr. Desiderio Avila office at Ironwood and every time (5+) we have an appointment we wait 60-90 minutes over the appointment time. We even tried talking to them to check in and come later but some medical professional office do not care about their patient's time. Frustrating. Today there was a man in pain, urinalysis bag, walker, going up to reception to say he was waiting long time and in pain several times. Finally after another 30 minutes he told them he has to leave because he needed help and will reschedule. Really? Inexcusable. Horrible office management with no consideration. #desiderioavila #noconsideration #medicalnightmares
Do not waste your time and energy on an office that does not care about patients
Self-verified patient of Dr. Desiderio Avila Jr - Posted on October 21st, 2015
It has been a horrible experience trying to set up a surgery appointment. We made 7 calls in 4.5 weeks and only one was returned. The return call was only to say she still needed to get more information on the facility. That was 1.5 weeks ago and no response. There is no care for patients. We paid for two appointments and several tests. We made the decision to have the surgery. A simple request for scheduling and billing information turned into over a month of frustration. This is the worst experience we have ever had and it is disheartening that this is the way the office treats patients. Veterinarians and their office return calls and show more care then this office does for their patients.
