What People Say About Dr. Alberto Vasquez, MD

Dr Vasquez correctly diagnosed me with Multiple Sclerosis on November 30, 2004. He has since given me exceptional care, which has led me, thankfully, into remission for the past 5 years. He even did a spinal tap with absolutely no pain, and believe me, I've had them before with excruciating pain with other doctors. There are no words to describe what a kind, thorough Neurologist Dr Vasquez is.

I have been with Dr, Vasquez since 2002. I have multiple neurological disorders that he was able to diagnose in one visit. That is after I had seen three other prominent neurologists, who were unable to diagnose my issues. Over the years I have referred friends to him with confidence that they would be treated with expertise and care. The staff has always been friendly and warm. I have been treated like a member of the family. I highly recommend Dr. Vasquez with complete confidence.

r Vasquez and his staff are absolutely wonderful! They are caring considerate and go above and beyond to make sure you understand what is being done and are comfortable with it. They explained everything they were doing and paid careful attention that we understood what they were saying. The tech was very informative and friendly throughout the procedure as was the Dr himself. I would highly recommend this Dr and his staff they were great!

My husband saw Dr. Vasquez one time in January and that was enough. He kept us waiting in the examining room for an hour before he showed up to go over the results of the nerve test that was done previously. When he did show up, he only spent about 20 minutes going over the results his broken English which was hard to understand. In Dec. we were billed $315 which stated we would be turned over to collections if not paid. Our insurance company said the bill was paid and we owed nothing.

Dr. Vasquez & lobotomist are EXCELLENT, the front desk staff could NOT be more rude unkind & a complete put off. I've been going to Dr. Vasquez for 6 mos+ and the women at the front desk/that answer the phones are getting to the point that I may look for a new doctor so I don't have to deal with them. Even when I am overly kind they are rude: its been 3 times I have had them just hang up on me, cut me off mid-sentence to put me on hold; they have YET to call me back when they say they will
