patient

My experience with Dr Valdez has been great. He is a caring doctor. He will refer you to a good physician if necessary. My only bad experience is his staff. A doctor can lose patients due to a unqualified staff. They really need training in their field. I have notice their reason for anything not going out to a pharmacy or any other place is always due to an inefficient fax machine. Trying to get an appointment is hard they love putting you on hold (hoping you do not call back). The front desk has so many issues. The office manager is not working in solving the issues.

Unresponsive staff

A medical staff can make or break a Dr.'s practice. Dr. V's staff must not like him very much because they are very unresponsive and will likely cause him to lose patients. I have been waiting for my prescriptions to be called in for over a week (I was assured after the visit that they would be sent "right over") I have been calling daily and left messages asking for a return call and no return call and no return calls and no prescriptions. UGH...Dr. Valdez WHAT is going on with your staff? A teambuilding and training is desperately needed...This rating would be a 5 if it weren't for the lack of return phone calls.
