dr is excellent; the waiting time is bad; the nurses are just fair; however their system of communicating with the doctor's special nurse is just the worst as well as the office operator which is forever busy, busy, busy. Few times I have had to personally go because of the problems mentioned. I ask the dr to please do something. PLEASE DOCTORY DO SOMETHING. THANK YOU.
Dr. Leyva's staff not helpful. Left messages to call back on mother's condition requiring immediate assistance. Office staff would not return call, or would say they would get back to us and even admitted that they were too busy to assist and would get back to us when they could. Dr. Leyva too busy to spend enough time with my mother. His nurse also would not visit on monthly basis, as promised. Had to find another doctor that was willing to see my mother and take proper care of her. It seemed as if this doctor's office was more interested in acquiring lots of patients and just move them out like cattle. Very disappointed that the doctor has forgotten his oath. Definitely discourage anyone from seeing this doctor.
Dr. Leyva is an exellent Doctor. Treats patients very well, has great bedside manner and is very thorough and spends time with patient and explains very well. Very personable. Staff on the other hand is terrible. Staff never answers phone took over 40 minutes on hold to make an appointment. Office Staff has attitude along with personal assistant! no bedside manner, and could care less about patients. Only reason I put up with it is due to fact Dr. Leyva is such a good Dr. and makes up for his impersonable staff.
