Dr. Medrano and his staff make me feel special, and I have never felt uncomfortable or embarrassed about discussing a health issue with them. Dr. Medrano is very smart and he has been able to diagnose and help me on the first visit for things I have been seen for on multiple visits at other practices. I totally trust his diagnoses and would highly recommend him to anyone.

I've been seeing Dr. Medrano for the past 15 years. He's an amazing and caring OBGYN. He is one of the best I've ever seen. He is caring and makes you feel like a person and not just another number to see on his calendar. He listens to you and addresses any concerns you have. He treats you like family and genuinely cares for your health. I respect and trust his decisions.
