I saw Dr. Figueroa for many years and he was helpful. However, having to wait 4 to 5 hours for an appointment became ridiculous..... His staff became rude. Having a small waiting room with up to 30 people waiting hours to see him, all in pain, it became increasing unfomfortable and scary waiting to see him. Some patients are their just to get meds... some could become violent.....If he is not going to get to the office until 1:00 he should not start booking appointments at 11:00 so he's already 2 hours behind. Has no regard for other peoples time. He thinks he the only dr. to treat fibromyalgia so he thinks he can treat people anyway he pleases because no one else will treat them. Very Unprofessional....
The waiting time it's long some times, cause he spend long time with each patient. I was sad at first time when i did wait almost 2 hours lol, but after i saw he only calls the next patient when he really finish with the one he have . I was impressed with how he took care of me and my needs. worth every single minute i wait,I never saw a Doctor take care of a patient like he does with his...it's amazing!!!!!
Dr. Figueroa is a great physician, and on the cutting edge in terms of knowledge and treatment options for some very complex, chronic conditions. I have never had a better relationship with a doctor, or received better care. My diagnosis was confirmed, and Dr. Figueroa was able to provide me with a treatment plan that made me feel better.He also takes his time to listen to his patients.I don't understand how the other people rate him, as every waiting room conversation with other patients has confirmed my impressions.
