Not very happy with these people right now. My wife has been trying for a week to get someone to help her with her UTI. One week, and no one has called her back. Dr. Cabrera has always been very good to us. I don't understand what is happening.

I transferred to Dr. Carbonell from one of the huge medical practices in Port Charlotte where I felt rushed. I can't believe how much time he gives me and how he listens to my concerns. The office is beautiful and the staff is friendly and caring. I am telling all my friends to give him a try.

Review for Dr. Robert Getter, MD

Spoke to me as though he thought himself as G-d. He's not G-d, he's a doctor who couldn't tell the truth and couldn't remember his own b/s. I would never recommend this......person.

Was under his treatment for one year. - Had every test possible (all lead to the same conclusion). He never seemed to be familiar with my medical file or what I was there for. He is hard to communicate with and the office runs slow and confused,. I went elsewhere to resolve my medical .

Review for Dr. Steven Christesen, MD

Seems like the bad review on here is confusing him with an adult doctor and not a neonate... He's a pretty awesome doctor and super chill. Deff not the "incompetent" crap someone posted. Ask anyone in town - he's a great guy and a great doc. Most people wish he had his own office.
