No respect
I transferred when my doctor changed her practice. This office is more concerned about having in-house pot lucks than seeing patients. I have to come in (read: pay) monthly just for refills. I have had my diagnosis for 14 years. He is consistently late and clearly has no respect for patients/people. I think he needs a refresher on the "first do no harm" and servant aspect of being a doctor. I'm sure he has much to be thankful for this year. I however will be trying to survive 4 days with no medication.

I am so over the phones never working. No one gets back to you. They have canceled my injection twice now. Like you’re supposed to help not add stress.

During my surgical procedure I was not yet under anesthesia and Viesca continued with the procedure anyway. I was complaining of severe pain and he just ignored me so he could hurry up finish. He is callous and uncaring in regards to his patients condition or the level pain he is inflicting on them. I strongly recommend avoiding this man for medical needs.

He did not fix my biggest problem in a timely manner. Right leg absolutely on fire, seemingly, but on the third set of injections he helped my, didn’t fix the nerves but got all the insurance money he could. I tell everyone not to go to him. He seems like an egomaniac. I will never use him again. Just a heads up.

The doctor was very kind. I'm pretty young to have the injuries I do, and most doctors have been dismissive. He asked pertinent questions and treated me like a human being instead of someone just looking for drugs. He explained several options that are not medication that could help me, and I was SO relieved. I left with a smile on my face, and I appreciate his professionalism and expertise. The staff was extremely helpful and everyone was so nice!

Dr. Has helped with my pain. I had a Dr.. that just keep giving me pills.Was taking pills that did not work . I talked to Dr. About a pain pump. It took some time to get it but now almost pain free. The best thing is that no more damn pills. I have had no problems with this Dr. Has always talked to me. Yes he is busy but just ask and he will talk to you abut anything.
