What People Say About Dr. Carlos Placer, MD
Reply
Dr is good but Front desk staff is horrible! Not professional at all and that's a shame people that work for a doctor should be compassionate in their job and treating others kindly! Front desk person is so unfriendly and rude! I have witnessed many times how she screams at people like if they are beneath her! Like I said Doctor good front desk staff awful!

Went in for sever pain from degenerative spinal problems in shoulder... Dr. recommended physical therapy...one year later I received a $500 bill for drug tests! I would never have agreed to this, as I cannot afford such tests, and I had just taken a drug test for my job for $50. Office says they drug test everybody, not just patients that they write perscriptions for. Really should be honest with patients up front about these tests.
