Wow a Dr that listens!

Dr. Mesa listened to everything I said, I never felt rushed at any appointments and after trying several conservative treatments he performed surgery. I am seeing him for several things following an auto accident and when I let him know how much pain I was in, he was very sympathetic, explained the expectations, and helped manage.the pain.

Not impressed

He overbooked his appointments so he spends very little time with you. He provided very little education on how to rehab the knee or specific exercises to strengthen, just the usual: rest, ice, elevate, and ibuprofen. I learned more via Google. Several wait times were an hour and several were only 15 min. Nice enough guy but he would not be my first choice again.

One Star

Jerk of a doctor, staff and receptionist are rude. Doctor doesn't provide any education and barley sees you for 3 mins. Answers questions walking out the door. Run! Don't go to him!

Billing mistakes

Although my family has seen 3 different doctors in this group, and we have had a good medical experience, we find out 2 years after my wife's last visit (with DR Mesa) that the outside company doing the billing made errors. Now they want us to pay them $25 for an item not billed 2 years ago. Although this is not over the top a problem, they informed us that these types of events can be billed up to 7 years after the mistake is found which now tells me if they are coming after me for $25 out of $10's of thousands already paid to them out of pocket and by insurance, they will more than likely come back for more. I trust the doctors, but if all of the errors in billing out there, watch your mailbox... I am sure you will see something soon from them. Does not make me want to go schedule my next hip replacement through this group, that's for sure.
