Waste of time

I really regret not reading reviews before visiting. I prefer straight shooters and doctors who don't spend a lot of time building rapport. In addition to these qualities, she was condescending, dismissive, and disengaged. She spent more time listening to herself talk and didn't ask about a single symptom. Beyond unprofessional!

Not helpful at all

All she did was smile and repeat that nothing works for osteoporosis except medication that I already tried that made me sick. She would not discuss exercises or other medications or treatments.

Stay away from Dr. Membreno

Dry, uncaring person who wears cocktail dresses. Terrible bedside manner. By-the-numbers and not symptoms.

Full Review Rating Breakdown
One Star

The worst bedside manner ever! I was referred to Dr. Membreno for a lump in my thyroid. I was scared and wasn't sure of what the lump was or would lead to. When I wanted my husband in the room for the needle biopsy, she rolled her eyes and yelled down the hall to her assistant stating "she wants hubby in the room". Dr. Membreno lacks any sort of compassion and caring in her dealings with patients. She may be a good doctor but not sure you would ever know it. Perhaps she should not be patient focused but stay in the clinical sector. Her staff is nice though and does try to deliver good service.
