Specialties

Dr. William C Lopez has the following 2 specialties

  • Gastroenterology

    A gastroenterologist is a specialist in diagnosis and treatment of conditions involving the digestive/gastrointestinal (GI) tract. These doctors are experts on how food moves through the digestive system and is chemically broken down, with nutrients being absorbed and waste excreted. You might see this kind of doctor if you are experiencing any number of stomach issues, some of which might be severe diarrhea, irritable bowel syndrome, hemorrhoids, ulcers, acid reflux, Crohn's disease and more.

  • 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.

Never see Dr. Lopez!

Dr. Lopez is by far one of the worst GI doctors I have ever seen. He misdiagnosed me and continued medications that were causing more harm than good. He claimed my case as a failure and said he would change my medications but never put in any orders. When he finally did place the orders the next day, it was for a medicine that is not possible for me to receive nor would it help my condition. He neglected me as a patient and has prolonged my healing process by more than two weeks as I cannot function in my normal daily routine. Dr. Lopez did not seem to care a bit about my well being and neglected to answer my questions as he never spent more than 5 minutes in the room with me and continuously tried to walk out as I was still trying to ask questions. I would never recommend Dr. Lopez to anyone.

The first time I went to see Dr. Lopez was 2 years ago, and I was diagnosed with colitis. He treated me for several months with a great medication that stopped my diahrrea. I went to see him approximately 5 weeks ago when I was experiencing extreme acid reflux. He suggested we do an endoscopy, which we did that week. He recommended change of diet and a medicine for reflux. Would I use him again, absolutely!!!
