      I called to make an appointment and they kept me on hold for 10 minutes. They could have easily apologized and ask to call me back.

      The office staff was very helpful. They were able to schedule an appointment for me right away. Dr. Acosta is very friendly and helpful. She was able to set up a new treatment plan for me that works well for my new diagnosis of Diabetes. She explained all of my new medication in detail and she was very understanding of my many questions. Overall a great experience with a diagnosis that I was not expecting.

      I was nervous about my biopsy but Dr. Acosta and the staff made me feel so comfortable and at ease. My appointment was for 7:45 am and I went in at 7:45 am. I would highly recommend her to any one that needed this type of procedure.
