Fumero and his staff are the absolute rudest and most unprofessional group of people. My wife was having adrenal crises every week and they refused to see her ever again because she missed an appointment (which was due to being in Mexico for her grandmas funeral). We had to beg them to be seen again. Last time we went in, Fumero pawned us off to another doctor without a referral. We found one on our own and was diagnosed with RA. We never would have known if we listened to him. He is a disgrace.

Dr Fumero seems competent, keeps me waiting nearly an hour even when I have the first appointment. My time is valuable too, Doctor! The real problem is Fumero's staff. They are non-responsive to me, as well as Walgreens and my insurance company when they call. Can't get a prescription filled, even in an emergency. I called for medical records on June 3, was told two weeks as Fumero had to write his notes. Called several times and even wrote a letter. Still NOTHING! Bad. 7/22/17

Doctor Fumero is very caring and spends lots of time with me every time I see him. I love that he gives samples regularly. There is always a wait, but that's to be expected if you want a doctor who will listen. I highly recommend him and his practice.

I was diagnosed with hashimoto thyroid disease 9 years ago. I have seen a couple of endocrinologist in town. I waited for my appointment with Dr. Fumero for 1 month. I was a little hesitant on waiting that much but it was well worth it. Dr. Fumero came in to the room very courteous and very professional/extremely well dress. He explained my disease in detailed like no one before. I will recommend him to my family. If you have any endocrinology needs give him a try. You wont regret it!

Mister Fumero was extremely dismissive, arrogant and downright hostile. He did not even attempt to listen as I was going over my symptoms/issues and picked a battle with what every other day I ever had said, desperate proof positive by tests. Avoid this hard-headed schmuck unless you have no other choice. Oh and the kicker, they were over TWO hours late while I got there 10 minutes early, as requested.

Fumero's center is more of a money making facility than a true patient car. His team double books appointments so expect to wait 2 hours to see him for 10-15 mins. I have had more than 2 occasions when this happened. His team is disrespectful. It also looks uncolorful to always see pharmaceutical reps who are dressed like they are on a hot date coming and going while you wait to see the doctor. I was happy to find another dr/location where my time as a patient is respected.
