This office needs new management
I have been a patient of Dr. Carlos for over five years. I no longer have insurance and still go out of my way to see his office and pay out of pocket. My last two experiences with this office was horrendous and for that reason I will not be returning. For starters the front desk staff needs assistance I have tried calling this office multiple times every time I call it’s a busy signal according to the receptionist they are getting over 600 calls a day and cannot manage it. The last time I visited this office Dr. Goldstein was very adamant on why I should get the vaccine although I explain to him for religious reasons I could not he kept persisting and told me to stop spreading Covid. My last visit yesterday I had been sick for 10 days so even if I had Covid I was no longer contagious . The front office happily took my $99 and when it came time for me to go into see the physician after driving 30 minutes to the office Dr. Carlos decided to do a virtual appointment by the elevator

Zero stars should be an option! Very rude, arrogant, and dismissive of symptoms and patient concerns. Barely examines when attempting to perform a routine physical which lasted about 3 minutes. Requested labs/ blood work and bases decision for treatment (or lack there of) for aches & pain, numbness, sleeplessness, and depression on those results. Called for follow up and was told everything was normal. I explained that I continue experiencing the above symptoms. I was told to "Call Joe Rogan for a prescription" and he immediately ended the call like a coward. No way this indivudual should hold a license to practice medicine. Wouldn't recommend to anyone at all.

Dr. Ballestas has been our primary care Doctor for over 10 years. Why my husband and I have never taken the time to leave a review is beyond me. Words can not express how thankful we are to have this Gentleman overseeing our care. He listens and remembers. He cares. We never feel rushed during our visits and his follow through and follow up shows just how much he cares for his patients. No matter what the purpose of our appointment his depth of knowledge is so reassuring. This review would not be complete without a "two thumbs up" for his assistant Claudia. She treat us like family. She calls to check up on us if she is concerned. I am guessing they both feel fortunate to be working together. I know we are. Thank you is not enough. We appreciate you. Dr. Ballestas.

I would not recommend him to my friends or family. In fact, I will not be returning. This appointment was incredibly rushed and careless. Doctor spent more time looking at his computer than trying to listen and understand what was going on with my health. If I didn’t already have an idea, I’m sure I would have gotten absolutely nothing out of this. He did not order the basic labs which come with every physical, so I had to call back and ask for them. Did not refer me to the specialist I clearly needed and he also downplayed my symptoms. This is incredibly dangerous because I left feeling km like my problems were not heard and my issues would continue. Definitely one of the worst doctors I’ve ever been to. Makes me incredibly sad that someone who is supposed to be empathetic of his patients could not show one ounce of interest. This is a doctors appointment, not a mechanic, but that’s exactly what it felt like.

He has been my PCP for about 3 years. I have found him to be very honest with my overall health and has given me valuable advise as to what I can do to help me achieve better health. He has really helped me and motivated me to achieve my goals and I could not be happier with him and his staff. I NEVER have to wait when I am there to see him for an appointment and his staff is amazing! I just love this office! I also love that they have Quest Diagnositcs in the same building!

Nurse laughed at me after denying me refill and said that he would not prescribe me one day without a followup- medicine is vital for high blood pressure, no laughing matter. Hard to reach anyone.

He didn't even look at my blood tests or ask me how I was feeling (terrible side effects from new medication)! It felt like he had somewhere a lot more important to be than talking to me. A visiting supervisor came in and told me, according to my record, "thanks for being a long term patient." It was my second ever visit! In the notes it said he talked to me about Diabetic foot care. He didn't do anything of the kind!

I met this doctor once, My first immediate impression was he is more worrying about insurance and how they pay him than the patient and whats going on with me. I had two issues and he said I can discus only one and for the other one I have to make another appointment because that's how insurance pays him. He fairly answered all questions about my first issue. His office staff were very nice and friendly except the front desk lady that was not that polite and seams to be mad at everyone.

Unfortunately I can't give him zero stars. I have a very good reason as follows. My wife wanted to meet with a different physician in Westside Primary Care facility due to an urgent medical need but ended up meeting with Dr. Ballestas. She was having high heart rate and we suspected elevated thyroid level as she has gone through two episodes in the past. It takes several weeks to get an appointment with her former endocrinologist. Also we have moved recently and she did not have a primary ca
