Long long long wait times, always

I've been to this doctors office several times and every single time I have to wait at least one hour after my appointment time before I'm called back. Then, after checking vitals, your are put in a room where you wait even longer, sometimes another 30 minutes for a doctor, well not even a doctor, the NP! All this is bad enough, but what really gets me is they have me come back every 3 months, for no reason! My prior doctor had me on YEARLY checkups, but they want me 4 times a year. Why? I can only guess but the only reason I can figure is for insurance billing, to keep claims coming in. All the NP did in these 3 month checkups was read from the computer screen and ask me the same questions every time I went. And all the answers were always the same, I'm fine, why am I here again?! So I left their practice, no reason to go 4 times a year and wait hours to see someone just to ask the same old questions. Just pathetic.

Unprofessional

I was very disappointed of this clinic, looks nice and clean but I waited over 1 hour before being seen,I heard all the workers arguing between each other and also the manager screaming at them. This was very unprofessional, will never go back.

Good and bad

PROS: doctors take time with patients, ask a lot of questions and listen, document everything on their little notebook PC'sCONS: you will wait, and wait, and wait. You will also probably not get to see Dr Pichardo directly, but one of his assistants (a PA). Finally, and one thing that bugs me the most, they overschedule you to death. That is, I have the same blood work done twice a year, yet they require me to schedule an office visit to get the authorization paperwork to get the blood work done, then a second visit to review the results afterwards. So you end up having to make 2 co-pays a week apart every 6 months (and of course they get to charge your insurance for two office visits instead of one). My old doctor in another state, just let me come in and pickup the authorization from the secretary without requiring an office visit just to pick up paperwork, then he followed up with me after I got the results with a normal office visit. That was so much more efficient, and saved everyone (me and my insurance company) what is essentially a wasted office visit just to pick up paperwork!
