Review for Dr. Obregon

Bad management!!! No training but they tell you they will train you, head down mouth shut, do your job-directly from supervisor, also misdirects you and then reprimands you. Worst experience, management does not support or help, turn over is very high!!!

Review for Dr. Ruiz-Tellez

Very disappointed. Office unorganized. Dr is very short with patient questions, wouldn’t answer some questions. Uninterested in my concerns. After two colonoscopies decided to move on.

Review for Dr. Gutstein

He does not listen. I had heumateria at one point. Dr Rizzo completely dismissed my questions and issues. He did not provide any advice or treatment, or answers to any questions. Would not recommend.
