Dr. Alejo and his staff went above and beyond! I have nothing but great things to say about them and would definitely recommend them to anyone needing a general surgery consult. The only complaint was wait time in his office but after speaking with him we realized he had emergency cases to take care of that morning, it wasn't because he overbooked.
We strive to provide the highest quality in patient care. Thank you so much for sharing this story with us!
