Specialties

Dr. Jose R Soto has the following 4 specialties

  • Surgery
  • 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.

  • Cardiology

    Cardiologists are doctors who specialize in the diagnosis, prevention and treatment of conditions related to the heart and blood vessels.
    A patient may be referred to a cardiologist if he experiences symptoms like chest pains, shortness of breath, dizziness, or high blood pressure. The physician will then evaluate your symptoms, take your health and family history and your weight. The cardiologist may order additional diagnostic tests, such as an echocardiogram, X-ray or blood tests. If necessary, the cardiologist may also call for a cardiac catheterization - a procedure in which a small tube is inserted into or near the heart that can take pictures of the heart's activity, or relieve blockage.
    Once determining whether there is a heart condition, a cardiologist will treat a patient through cholesterol management, cardiac rehabilitation, and fitness. If surgical intervention is required, like open-heart surgery, a cardiologist will make that determination, but a cardiothoracic surgeon will perform the procedure.

Bad service after his latest move

I have been Dr. Sotos patient for over 7 years. I have seen him go through 3 moves the latest one being the problem. Since his last move the wait time in the office has increased as well as the wait time once you are shown into the examining room. My last visit I forced myself to be patient when it reached one hour in the exam room, then went out and complained. The staff behind the desk reminds me of postal workers. I still go to Dr Soto for I believe in him and want to believ this is no fault of his own, just too many Dr's in one office and bad management by office staff.

Dr. Raul Soto was very rude and told me not to come back unless I was really sick. He had been my cardiologist for five years but not anymore.
