Francisco G. Aug 31 2020

He is highly professional but there were several people who arrived well after me who were seen first. What is the point of making and honoring an appointment only to be ignored for nearly 90 minutes?

The new spinal fusion approach Dr. Smith did on me is 100% better than the old approach that I had done 10 years ago. I spent less time in post op pain and was up walking that surgical day.

Review for Dr. Viesca

I went today to Dr Gomez office. I waited 2hrs to be seen. I wish they would’ve told me that it was going to take that long and I would’ve requested the appropriate amount of time off from work. After 2hrs of waiting, the doctor saw me for 5mins and then I was done. Like seriously?

Review for Dr. Gomez

Dr. August is easy to talk to and explains things very well with language that you can understand. The wait times have improved greatly, you use to wait for 2 hours at least but now you're in after 10/15 minutes. Excellent doctor.
