Your trust is our top concern.

We strive to keep the reviews trustworthy, honest & fair.

We monitor all reviews to ensure they comply with our guidelines and don’t include personal information, profanity, libel, defamation, harassment, obscenity or fraud.

All reviews are confirmed and audited before publication, and community members have the ability to flag inappropriate content for further review by our team.

Doctors can not pay for good reviews, nor can they pay to have negative reviews removed.

Any reviews that are deemed fraudulent or violate our guidelines will be removed immediately.

Dr Atienza was extremely thorough. He took his time and reviewed my past history. I felt like he was actually listening to what I had to say which is rare these days! The staff from receptionist to the nurses were friendly and welcoming.

Very happy patient
When you first walk into an office like this I was expecting sad and cranky patients. Instead the majority came in with smiles on their faces and laughter. It was there and then I knew that Dr. Atienza was the doctor for me. The doctor explains all my questions in language I understand.

My husband and I have both been treated by Dr. Atienza and his team. We are very pleased with our treatment, our questions are always answered and return phone calls are made in a timely manner. Sometimes there is a wait before seeing Dr. Atienza but I know he has many patients and we know when we finally see him, we have his undivided attention. We are thankful for all he has done for both of us. We strongly recommend Dr. Atienza and his team.

Couldn't be a worse dr. This man literally did nothing for his cancer patient. Your best bet is to immediately find another doctor as soon as possible. Don't wait for this guy to treat anything, because by the time he even thinks about it, it will be too late.
