I have been with doctor Romero 15 years and have to say he has been the best doctor for not only me but my wife and child. He has put my families health in good hands and does what it takes to control heath issues.If he can not resolve the problem he refers you to a doctor who can.Granted time waiting for him is sometimes longer than expected but that makes a doctor wanted.
I was a patient of his for over 6 years. For the first couple of years it was a pleasant experience. Since he has built his Taj Mahal medical center, all that has changed including himself. He has gotten tooo important for his patients. If you are able to see him other than a nurse practitioner you were not expecting, you might get a few minutes at best and if he leaves the patient room you were to see him, you won't see him again. All of the other testimonials herein are DEAD ON!!! Too bad!

This doctors Office is extremely unprofessional .... The wait times are horrible and if u need to go pack a lunch !! He used to be about his patients but now is all about which ever insurance company is taking care of him and saving them money at any cost of his patient . He smiles in your face and stabs you in the back all while keeping that smile !! Do yourself a favor and go elsewhere !! And the administrator is very unethical as well so don't look to him for help !!

Dr. Romero violates the Medicare Patient Bill Of Rights. Denying specialty care when the patient is it. Why? Because the insurance companies offer a REWARD to doctors for keeping cost down. This is done knowing that he is risking the patient's health. The progress notes are altered in order to cover the misconduct. Ask for the progress notes if discrepancies. Don't be afraid. report them to the Florida Dept Of Health. One dead, 1 hospitalized, 1 waiting on ivestigation. .

I would NEVER recommend this office. I was a patient for approx 2 yrs,called as my mom went into Hospice w/ 1week to live.I was last seen 11/16/15-5 mths ago. I req anxiety med to help sit next to her bedside & be calm & supportive.had to deal w/ support staff who had no compassion, no grace & kept misunderstanding what I was asking_kept telling me since I had not been seen in 5 mths I had to come into the office for an appt & wouldn't let me talk to dr~couldnt step out of the box_distressing

His interest are focus in the Insurance company's Best interest not the patients. He refuses to refer patients to specialist when they really need. He never provide the patient the full opportunity to receive that a sick person deserves. It is more convenient to have them go to his office every month without any relief & keep collecting pay from the insurance company instead of referring to a specialist that can perhaps help the patient. THE WORST DOCTOR I ever visited.
