hard to get an appointment, needs to hire an additional PA, front desk staff were terrible, felt like they were more concerned about future co-pays than my experience/satisfaction.

Biggest Egos in Miami

I don't know where to begin with this office. To start, it is next to impossible to make an appointment with Dr Garcia. You have to wait about 2 months. In my 4 years going to that office I saw Dr. Garcia once. All other times I had to see the nurse because I could not wait 2 months for an appointment. Then once you finally get to the office you will have to wait 15-30 min to get put in a room. There are a few nice nurses in the office but most of them are extremely rude! They have terrible attitudes and don't call you back when they say they will. This office also FORCES you to make a second follow up appointment just to get any kind of results or bloodwork back. So get used to paying your co-pay and parking twice EVERY TIME. Now, as for Dr Garcia, he seems like a decent person, but WOW, what an ego!! If you dare suggest something he does not agree with he will not give it any consideration whatsoever. He is extremely rude and did not take any of my concerns seriously. He treated me like I was crazy and knew nothing about health. I am done with these people. My advice: find someone else.

Great doctor - regrettable receptionists

Would highly recommend Dr. Garcia and all of his staff. It's unfortunate that they continue to hire receptionists with poor attitudes. It makes a good doctor and office look just okay.

Always feel as though I get the "Bum's rush" in this doctor's office. Doctor not familiar enough with my chart, lacks compassion, likes to delegate to staff and other specialists he recommends.
