Dr. Joel Fausto K Estrada has the following 1 specialty
- Internal Medicine
An internist is a physician who focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of conditions that affect the adult population—both acute and chronic.
These doctors are often who adults see as their primary physicians because they treat a broad range of illnesses that do not require surgical or specialist interventions. They also work to help a patient maintain optimal health in order to prevent the onset of disease.
In addition to treating the common cold and flu, internists also treat chronic diseases like diabetes and heart disease.

Called for appointment,I have just gotten back from Mexico. I have been vary ill, told there were no appointment till Wed.! Today is a Monday and I have not eat or been able to since Friday! (been in the bathroom not able to keep any thing in me) Her manner at the appointment desk ,there nothing till Wed. and that it! I have been going to Dr. Estrada for over 10 years, Will I go back NO.
I worked with Dr. Estrada for a month, doing my rotation during a 3rd year of medical school, and came across the site occasionally. After reading one of the negative reviews, which, in my opinion, is rather mistaken, I thought I should share my experience with the patients. I have worked with many doctors during my rotation and must say that Dr. Estrada is the most thoughtful and caring physician. Unfortunately, these days many patients confuse good customer service with good bedside manners. Dr. Estrada's bedside manners are in good Hippocratic traditions, he is quite and kind with his patients, and is not trying to use unnecessary cheerfulness that is more appropriate in a restaurant business rather than in medical care. He always takes time to review the notes of all physicians involved in a patient's care before each appointment. In addition to his professionalism, he is a very knowledgeable physician, who treats a cause not a symptom, which is expected from any physician, but is not necessarily true of any physician. I have learned a lot from Dr. Estrada and only hope to live up to his example, and I would trust him to take care of any of my family members or myself.
Excellent ratings are often suspect but in this case they are accurate and well deserved. The negative vital comments given here must be for another Dr Estrada. As for his nurse, certainly not Rene, definately not any of the front office staff. For over two years Dr. E and his staff have been extraordinary with my sister's care, follow-up and most impressive, monitoring and coordinating her many appointments/care. They have gone out of their way to ensure I am kept in the loop throughout all the many appointments. Unlike many doctors that just treat the symptom de jour, Dr Estrada has a well managed and coordinated plan for her. He reviews the notes from all the other providers with her and I and discusses these in relation to the overall goal, her test results and likely as well as needed outcomes.Im sure there are a lot of folks that think Doctors are miracle workers and want someone else to deal with that which they cannot, thus a bit bitter when things are not exactly their way. Yet, I have found nothing in the two derogratory comments to be true in my sisters care. More astounding to me is the preception I had that a Medicare/Medicaid patient would get second rate care, not the case I have found at Dr Estrada's office.
