Three Stars

I have been seeing Dr. Carlos for many years. Her practice has changed. The waiting room is now always packed. I feel like a "number" instead of a patient. She used to spend time with me and really understand what is going on. It is now a factory to get in and out as many people.

One Star

She is ALWAYS in a rush. She lacks in tact and in bedside manner. And if you have questions, she doesn't hesitate to roll her eyes at you. She is incredibly rude and feels it is ok to talk down to you. NEVER AGAIN. Julie however, her nurse practitioner, is wonderful. Her bedside manner is amazing. She talks to you and listens and answers ANY questions without rolling her eyes at you. It's a shame she isn't an ob/gyn her self. Julie is beyond amazing.

Not sure why Dr Carlos doesnt have all 4 star reviews!

I saw Dr. Carlos and her PA Julie during my first pregnancy 2-3 years ago. Both Dr. Carlos and Julie were nothing but professional, caring and I never had a long wait for an appointment. Even her staff were very nice and personable. I am going to use Dr. Carlos for my 2nd pregnancy as well.

Terrible Obstetrician

Yes, she showed up to catch my baby. Of course I had to hold my pushing in order for her to have the time to get there. My daughter is 4 years old now and still has has marks on her forehead caused by the long and unnecessary induction (ordered by Dr. Carlos) and the staff not realizing for 2 full hours that I'm fully dialated -yes the epidural they gave me worked so good, all I felt was I slight pressure down there. Staff informed me, that if the baby was ready I would know and that this was not it. I just kept complaining until they finally checked me and realized my baby was coming out on her own. A birthing experience I'll never forget. Three years later I delivered naturally no drugs at a birth center with a midwife who was with me the whole labor. All nurses were so nice, I just wanted to cry.

Rude Billing Staff

My physician referred me to this office. I am almost four months and would go to another specialist if I did not think it was going to be a hassle. This is my first baby and am not quite sure how everything goes. I had a billing question and spoke to the billing person. I asked her a question and she was not answering me. So she yelled at me. I did not appreciate being spoken to like a child. The receptionists are ok and have their moments of being rude. I can honestly say after I have the baby I am going to another OBGYN. The doctor is nice and so is the nurse.
