The wait time is a.lie. 2 hours minimum. The staff sucks. They are always filled with excuses and are incompetent. The manager Diane is the worse of all. I suggest you run far away as possible.

I can give testimony, referring to Dr. Abreu, he attends to my mother 3 years ago, she is happy with him, says she gives him peace of mind, gives him confidence, he is very helpful, attentive and worried about his patients, for that and more we recommend Dr. Rafael Abreu.

My visit went very smoothly. I was taken care of a sat down in a matter of 5 minutes. The staff was friendly and took x-rays of my teeth efficiently and without problems. They made me feel all the attention was on me and my concerns. Finally I finished pain free and with a great healthy smile.

This doctor only saw my husband for 10 minutes and did not address his concerns. In our opinion, waste of time overall. He spent most of the visit talking about himself and not my husband's health. He definitely should retire.
