My visit as a new patient with Dr. Valenzuela was a very pleasant experience. Dr. Valenzuela is easy to talk to and he explained in detail, both visually and orally, my condition and how he was able to treat it. His office and clinical staff took good care of me with no waiting time. I will definitely continue to see him for my condition and would highly recommend him to friends and family.

I have been a patient of Dr V since 2012 he is a very caring Doctor and is very passionate about his patients. Even though there are times you may have to wait to see him it’s because he takes his time with each of his patients and answers all your questions unlike some Doctors who rush you in and out. He is definitely in my opinion the best Rheumatolgist in south Florida

I've seen Dr. V. a few times, I think he is a good doctor, the front office and the PA however, are sarcastic, uncaring, arrogant and liars. The wait time is over 2 hours, they don't fill refills, don't send scripts or order prescriptions as ordered by the doctor. Tremendous disconnect with the Lab and I can go on and on, don't waste your time here, I'd rather be in pain and not suffer these clowns' foolish and childish games.
