Dr. Carlos M. Alonso, MD says

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 new patients requesting appointments during the last year. We are moving as fast as we can to make the necessary adjustments to continue providing the high level of service you are accustomed to. These include renting a bigger office space, bringing in new physicians, educating our employees, improving our administrative staff, and investing in new technology. Patients will start noticing these improvements in the next few months and throughout next year. I apologize for your recent experience but hope you stay with us during this transition taking into consideration the good care we have provided in the 7 years you have been our patient.

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.

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.
Excellent
