Two Stars

Dr Preciado is a good doctor, although she has an inexperienced billing department. They don't try and reach out when there's an issue. Hard to run a good business without good accounting skills!

Warm and enthusiastic

I have been Dr. Preciado's patient for 13 years and always feel well taken care of. The biggest nuisance is the wait time, which can be up to 45 minutes and even an hour, if you include the time in the exam room before she gets in to see you. She is also not always good about calling about the results of tests. She is, however, thorough and proactive in diagnosis and finding a solution. She is a good listener and offers a healthy dose of positive advice delivered with the best bedside manners.

Overwhelmed Physician

I am speaking for my elderly mother who has recently under gone a major surgery. The surgeon ordered particular test to be performed by Dr. Preciado, that were not followed and my mother is now hosptitalized. After my mother surgery she was discharged to Dr. Preciado for care, she never returned phone calls, never once went to visit my mother in the convalesant home where she was recovering from her surgery but sent another physician from her office, that never did examine my mother. It took several calls to her office to get an ultra sound performed for a deep hematoma, that could of ended badly. In all I think in the past has been a good physician for my mother but whatever is going on in her life she needs to get a handle on it - so that patients can have the care they need.

Personal attention at its finest

Love Dr Preciado's interest in me and my health, her optimism. She is nonjudgmental, but supportive of positive change. She orders tests that are appropriate, but does not over-test with reckless it's-not-my-money abandon.I've always been able to get in quickly on the very rare occasions when I have something acute happening, or when I just don't feel "right" and it's making me nervous. Or when I just need an answer about something, I can talk to a patient, helpful nurse who, if he/she says he is going to talk to the doctor and call me back, actually does so. I know enough to call ahead for my annual physical.My one constructive criticism is that follow-up on test results is not always automatic. My mom's doc sends out a letter detailing all of her results on paper; I need to call in to get a verbal report. This year at my annual I'm going to request a written report and see what happens.Overall, Dr. Preciado is a rare find and I'm grateful to receive the level of care she provides.
