I am very happy. A friend's mother recommended this doctor and the whole experience was amazing. The staff is excellent, the office works on time, the doctor is very knowledgeable and makes you feel at ease. He is my new doctor.

Unfortunately in the Doctor office the $$$ is hight priority then the patient. My experience ( been in pain), I assist to my appointment and I was denied to see the doctor because: I didn't have insurance ? .... I believe that doctors "swear" when they graduate so they never have to leave a patient unprotected for money ...
Luis. I understand your frustration. We work very hard to offer excellent medical care. The current insurance system puts many restraints on the delivery of medical services and many times it fails both the patient and the provider. We know how hard it can be. As you know we have tried to accommodate your situation in many different ways. I hope you understand and give us another opportunity.

I called the office in pain last week and was seen immediately. The receptionist was very understanding and compassionate and fit me in to be seen the next day. Dr. Alonso was efficient in treating my discomfort and empathetic of my overall anxiousness of my condition. I will be following up in the next weeks.

I'm a patient of dr Alonso for 7 years and I'm happy with him until las year the office is a chaos and the service of him is very poor special this year to have appointment and any problems , I don't received any response from the Dr I'm very disappointed . I don recommend him any more.
Mercedes. I am very sorry to hear you are disappointed with our practice and me in particular. Even though there is no excuse for poor service, there has been a tremendous increase in patients during the last year. We are moving fast to make the needed adjustments. Patients will start noticing these improvements in the next few months. I apologize for your experience but hope you stay with us during this transition taking into consideration the good care we have provided during the last 7 years.

He completely ignored records from prior specialists and didn't make any effort to treat my condition. I have never been treated so poorly before. I saw him for a year and he never proscribed me anything and i ended up getting a blood clot and now a tumor do to his negligent care. I was diagnosed with Lupus 5 years ago and had RA since i was a child and he never treated any of the conditions and i got worse. He showed no interest in trying to figure out the issue and became rude.
