Provider Reviews

Went in for ear cleaning for my son. He was fine with the procedure. It is unquestionably the fastest procedure ever. 10 minutes. Puts into question the professional acumen and value $$ of visit. Simply facts.

Have heard good things about Dr. McKinley, but would love to know if anyone has had a knee replacement with him in the past year or so? How did the procedure, rehab and outcome go? Any feedback would be invaluable. Thank you.

Review for Dr. Rachelson

Scheduling is horrible. He constantly overbooks. Frequently cancels your appointment then reschedules and overbooks later on. December to June to get a CPAP machine. You can just plan on an hour and a half for an office visit, and don't be surprised if it is two.

Review for Dr. Lakshmi-Narayanan

Not what I expected in a professional doctor's office. After 2 visits and a CAT scan on sinuses as well as 2 prescriptions still no relief. Doctor is no longer seeing ANY patients..he's only doing surgery and leaving the rest up to his staff of young nurses to diagnose and treat patients.

Review for Dr. Jones

Condescending and doesn’t listen to patient concerns. She came in with her mind made up of what was wrong, despite being completely off the mark. She’s arrogant and condescending, and just overall unpleasant.

Best Emergency Doc I have ever had! Caring, polite, took time to explain everything, and when he didn’t know something he did his research! Thank you Dr Bayardo!

Review for Dr. Pacheco

The likelihood of recommending Dr. Iturregui to family and friends is extremely high; five stars for being a professional, with the knowledge and empathy to treat patients. I have in fact recommended him to several of my friends. This doctor and his staff deserve more than five stars.

I found Dr. McKinley to be friendly and intelligent. He has always listened to my questions and given thoughtful responses, spending as much time with me as necessary to satisfy my needs. He performed a total knee replacement for me and I have great confidence in him.

Review for Dr. McKinley

I think it is appalling that next to No doctors accept Medicaid in Taos. He is one of many. Most people i know go out of town for everything,including seeing NON greedy Physicians who are not tied into the pharmaceutical matrix.

Very gentle and caring dentist. It's nice having a dentist that's not trying to make a quick buck by doing unnecessary procedures. Highly recommend and couldn't imagine going to anyone else.

It is such a pleasure to go to a doctor's office where the staff is friendly and you feel like the dentist is looking out for your needs and not trying to push unnecessary procedures on you.

Dr Fraiser was wonderful! Very knowledgeable and took the time to explain what was not understood by my husband. His office has received several updates over the past year it seems. It only keeps getting better! Does not look like he is retiring soon.

He was very patient and explained everything in a way that I would be able to understand. He talked to me like a person rather than a patient. He made me feel very comfortable and not rushed when i asked him questions. I highly recommend him.
