    The doctor was very detailed oriented and make the effort to take a very comprehensive history. She provided me very well sounded advice and showed genuine interest in my well being but more importantly focus tremendously in holistic approaches as well.

    Bait and switch - we were given a price over the phone for a full treatment plan, but then they changed the plan in the middle of admission. Dr. Baez wanted us to pay for additional services to get to what was originally agreed. Entire staff was unable to follow their own plan, as it changed every day. Patients missed sessions because of changes to the schedule. The entire staff needs training in listening, spelling, etiquette, nutrition, time management and common sense.

    I had a very professional experience with the physician and she dedicated time to answer all my questions.

    She does not get back to you. She shouldn't be a doctor. All she cared about was what was on the computer screen - I don't think she looked at me twice. I've called and was told I had to leave an email. It took 2 emails to finally get a response and that was with an attitude. I would never recommend her to anyone. Not even a dog!

    New office staff is incompetent, anything having to do with prescriptions (refills, dosage changes, keeping up with what you are/are not taking) is just very, very slow. Appointments are difficult to reschedule. Trying to speak go a human being at the office when calling is near impossible, have go leave many voicemail and emails and hope they ever get back to you. Follow ups do seem incomplete and very brief, as a prior reviewer stated.

    Very poor quality service and care. Calls to the office regarding serious medication side effects and interactions were not returned, an appointment was rescheduled without notice, with no provision made to avoid the resulting gap in medication, both the intake appointment and follow up were very brief and incomplete; the doctor displays no affect and appears to lack insight and interest in both assessing and assisting patients to reach the correct diagnosis and results.
