I would like to say Dr Alfonso he is a good Doctor as per his office manager is rude and very unprofessional when you call to ask for an appointment she gives you a appointment for following week for example i called office because i had really bad cold did not go to work and she said no i have nothing for today you can go to E.R if you need a note for work I feel that is very unprofessional that you are my doctor and i have to go to E.R for a cold just because she felt that it was not an emergency I complained to doctor and he didnt say anything to here instead he sent me a termination letter with no reason to why i was terminated. Obviously this doctor listens to his staff and does what he is told by the office manger i have never been to an office and seen such behavior especialy form a office manger.

Todo comenzo cuando llame para hacer una cita. Entonces fue cuando una de las secretaria me informo que tenia que mandar por fax una copia del seguro. Yo personal mente tome mi tiempo para pasar por la oficina y dejarle una copia de la tarjeta de mi seguro. La senora que tomo mis datos me dijo que me llamaria para darme una cita. Al pasar4 dias y ella no me llamaba, entonces decidi llamar fue en ese momento que la pobre senora, que me imagino que por la edad estaba de mal humor me dijo que no se podia dar citas porque la computadora estaban danadas y que ni siquiera el dr. Estaba viendo sus pacientes. Me pare io extrano y con asombro le dije " como va a ser que el dr. No pueda ver pasiente porque la comp. este danada! Su respuesta fue la siguiente " bueno vaya a ver otro dr. Ok y me cerro el telefono. Bueno, pasaron dos semanas y volvi a llamar. La verdad queria que ese dr. Me revisara porque tengo varias amiga que son sus pacientes y dicen que es un buen dr.. La secretaria me contesto diciendome que yo era la senora que le hable mal y que a mi no se me iba a atender en esa oficina. Que pena que personas asi trabajen con el publico sin saber como se siente el paciente. Muy grocera la senora
