Excellent review
Dr Lopez is an exceptional psychiatrist with expansive knowledge and experience in working with dual diagnosed patients. He thoroughly helps manage medication and make adjustments, he recommends therapy as a psychiatrist he knows he is not providing therapy. Some people put all the responsibility for change on the MD and do not realize they are the change agent. He is empathetic, kind, thorough, caring and very skilled doctor.

Wonderful experience
Dr. Lopez has been amazing for us. He has spent so much time listening to our concerns. He works diligently to help regulate our meds. He is very good at explaining answers to all of our questions and concerns. He really does have his patients quality of life at the forefront of his concerns. We appreciate him fitting us in for emergency appointments and immediately returning our call when we had to make a middle of the night call. He is the 3rd psychiatrist we have seen and is by far the best. I recommend him to anyone.

Doctor misdiagnosed me because he failed to do a history. He does not listen and he does not ask questions due to language barrier it seems.

Horrible experience. Misdiagnosed our child, over medicated her to the point where she wasn’t functioning then called her schizophrenic. All he did was throw drugs at us.

One the absolute worst experiences with a medical professional. Not only did he make me feel terrible about myself but he boldface lied to me about my medication. He was rude and inconsiderate. He does not respect your time, he took a rep during my appointment slot. Not to mention his front staff are alway disheveled and always eating at the desk. Find someone else!

Dr. Lopez Cardona is attentive, sincere, empathetic and highly competent. He is a patient listener and his questions are on point. I always feel like I am the most important patient during my time in his care. I would highly recommend him.

My daughter has suffered tremendously throughout her entire life (she is now 13.) Diagnosed ADHD/ODD by other Doctor(s) at the age of 4.5 and prescribed meds, she took them until the age of 11 but she just seemed to be getting worse with every year. Dr. Lopez was able to make the correct diagnosis (bipolar) and she is steadily working towards better health. Dr. Lopez is always available and provides excellent care. I finally found the right professional to care for my baby.
