Have you seen Dr. Norma C Quijada III?
Self-verified patient of Dr. Norma C Quijada III - Posted on October 24th, 2017
My doctor retired, so somehow Dr. Quijada became my doctor. I went there yesterday for the first time. I waited over two hours to see the doctor. First I was called in to this woman who took my history and medical information. She never introduced herself to me, so I had no idea who she was. She could have been Quijada for all I knew. Then I was sent back to the tiny waiting room. twenty more minutes went by when I was called in to be examined. Another woman interviewed me, she also did not give me her name, so again I had no idea who she was. When I asked she said she was not the doctor but her assistant. When the doctor finally came in she spent a total of three minutes with me.She barely listened to my heart and lungs. When examining my thyroid she told me to swallow, she took her hands away before I could swallow. Then she left the room. Almost a three hour wait for three minutes! And this was my first visit with her! There were other doctors in the building, and this tiny waiting room. We were packed in like sardines, with people who were clearly irritated with the wait. This was a poor first visit with a doctor. I think I will find another doctor

I have been trying to contact ANYONE in the office for two days now, just to find out when my scheduled appointment is. I have sat on the phone for well over 1 hour each and every time, only to NEVER have anyone come back. Worst mistake she very made was partnering with WNY Medical. the lack of efficiency is deplorable SINCE.

After seeing FIVE Endocrinnologists, Dr. QUijada is the ONLY doctor who listened to me, was non judgmental, and was accurately able to diagnose me properly.

How NOT to run a Doctor office!
A patient who verified they visited Dr. Norma C Quijada III - Posted on October 22nd, 2014
First off, the office staff is rude, unprofessional, and down right ignorant! I have personally witnessed the "mocking" of patients after they leave the office. I also have been the victim of a very ill-prepared secretary who will screw up your appointments then charge you a $40 no-show fee after she screws up your appointment, then you get to see the "doctor" who cant keep her personal life to the side long enough to explain your test results! When the patient has to tell the "doctor" to look at the results of each and every test that was taken, there is a problem! Save yourself the trouble and STEER CLEAR! of this entire situation!!!! It is a sinking ship that will soon be underwater!
Best Endocrinologist around!

Best Endocrinologist around! I know because I've been to 3 others in the W.N.Y. area, and they were just awful. Dr. Quijada is warm, caring, compassionate, and she really listens to what you tell her. Some people complain about the wait time, but considering the amount of time she spends with each patient, it all evens out. I would rather wait 45 min.s to an hour for a really GOOD Doctor, than be rushed in and out by, one a whole lot less competent. 4 star rating for the good Doctor ( I would have rated her higher, if there had been more stars.) I would, and have recommend her , many times. :)

Dr. Quijada is a very caring doctor who listens what you have to say. She wants to know everything that is going on with your health. She takes her time with her patients and so yes, you do have to expect to wait but she never cuts her time short with you and clearly states that in her office. If you want to see her vs. the PA you just have to ask.

She is acceptable if you are in need of adoctor but needs room for improvement. Thepatient wait time is terrible, last time Ihad to wait almost two hours. If it were not for the shortage of doctors would thinkof looking around. She has good knowledge of her field.
A Doctor who listens
A review by a patient that verified they have visited Dr. Norma C Quijada III - Posted on November 10th, 2011
Dr.s Staff is cheerful.The wait is commensurate of any professional worth their expertise -approx. 15 minutes. Once called, you are interviewed by two medical professionals -both obtaining ant pertinent info necessary for Dr. She is a breath of fresh air, listening to the patient, personally examining and ordering necessary procedures, all the while keeping the client informed of her findings, feelings, and avenue to continue. Everyone works as a well oiled machine - Dr. Quijada expects the best for her clients.

Dr. Quijada hardly sees patients, only the PA or MN sees the patientShe seems money hungry and does not explain the issues well enoughShe let me wait for 2 hours and forgot that I am waiting in the office, I told the office staff and they would not tell her. I would not recommend her to anyone.

After being with the practice for 5 years, I've seen Quijada twice. She refers her appointments on to her nursing aides. Her manner is horrible, she is rude, as are her staff.
