Dr. Contreras is a great Doctor. I have no complaints.

When you finally get to see him, he seems fine, but getting to that point is a process. I'm not the biggest fan of his office staff or the young lady who administers the tests before you can see him for exams.

My mom has glaucoma, he advised us that controlling the pressure in her eyes is the way to handle the illness. The last time they checked her pressure was in 2015. She has been loosing her eye vision in one of her eyes. He didn't recommend anything or advise us that she needs to check an specialist, instead he kept treating her. Now that he is receiving patients from a hospital he needs to free up his practice and has referred us to a specialist. He is rude and short with her medical explanation
