What People Say About Dr. Elva Lopez, MD

I am post menopausal. I have had quite a few problems with menopause, and continued hot flashes. She has really tried to work with me in solving these problems. I do know I need to do a lot of research myself, as she is very busy with pregnancies. She offered me medications to do not involve hormone replacement therapy, which I preferred. I do wish they were more gynecologist dealing with senior women’s problems, however she is quite good at working with older women.

I actually love Dr Lopez. She was very open when it came to answering questions or addressing concerns. I was a late add on to their office and they took care of me as if I had been a patient since day 1. The office staff is very friendly and helpful. Glad I stumbled across their number when searching for a last minute OB.

The Office staff aren't very professional, had issues with getting medication sent to Pharmacy with correct information, don't know how to call people back, ended up having to follow up with them when they stated they would follow up with me. Ended up leaving wallet for a few minutes and everything was stolen. Office staff team are just rude if you make them work I'm sorry, do their job. Transfer without a call letting me know anything. Had to follow up with them to find out why. WOULDNT Go Here

She placed a mesh implant in my cervix and I've had several medical problems from it. Don't recommend her

Overcrowded office. 90% pregnant teens. She refused to complete a pelvic at my annual exam, just did the usual pap smear, breast exam. She wanted me to have an ultrasound for the pelvic, which was another $200 charge in her office, because she said I was too tense....really? No other Dr. has ever made such a statement. Very poor bedside manner.
