Patient Comments (3)
el paso texas |
I was referred to this doctor after being in the ER and only saw his PA which didn't listen to my concerns and all she said was that she had patients younger than me with cancer and for that reason they needed to do and endoscopy and colonoscopy. I left very concern I think that she should reserve her comments until she has results I did have the endoscopy done and everything was fine. I went back for results and still had health issues to what she said that she couldn't help me anymore.

Extremely rush, kept cutting me off, would not listen to what I was saying, just typed into a computer, did no physical exam, waited weeks for this appt, in meantime had to visit ER, staff will not get you in immediately, even if you say I'm calling from the ER. I was absolutely stunned. The female nurse practitioner does a much better job but I wanted to see the Dr himself this time because it's getting worse. Shocked doesn't begin to describe it.

Except for the actual procedures I have had, I have yet to have an appointment with Dr Chavez. I always see the PA. The PA's are helpful, and knowledgeable. I cannot leave messages because their mail box is always full. Since I did not get a confirmation call regarding my appointment, I tried to call to find out the time of my appontment. When I finally got through, I was on hold for 20 minutes. The office environment is too cold in winter, and too hot in the summer.
