The office is not responsive. Most of the time they don’t even bother to return your calls. He also wanted to continue the same treatment that was leaving my A1C around 9 for a year straight. Then he told me he would switch me to the pump and I got a call a week later saying that he wouldn’t. Then he released HIPPA information without my authorization to an unauthorized party and the information he released was incorrect all together. If you value you or your loved ones health, go somewhere else

I think some of the problems I'm having are related to my thyroid, but he seemed disinterested. He seemed rushed and in a hurry to go on to the next patient.

Dr. Rico was my Endocrinologist in Terre Haute, IN and I absolutely loved him. He is very thorough and very caring. It made me very sad when he left Terre Haute. Everyone there should be thankful and appreciative that he is there. Wonderful doctor!! Although I am no longer his patient I will always remember what a great doctor he is.
