McAllen, Tx |
I have been treated by Dr. Garcia and his PA's since 2011. He diagnosed my lupus, fibromyalgia, Sjogren's syndrome and arthritis. The staff is uncaring, unsympathetic, and brusque. It is as if they do not understand every patient in that office is in some kind of pain. I go in for an appointment every 3 or 4 months and I never get the results of my bloodwork and when they do, it is 3 or 4 months old. Dr. Garcia is a nice man but sees way too many patients.

the service staff is the hardest to work with i have ever encountered. as a business owner, i can tell you right now that this doctor will go bankrupt because of his service office staff. sad sad sad. i will tell anybody that wishes to hear about the sad service that this offices gives. i will not recommend this doctor as his office staff has terrible service. they will not offer to help, i think they are just bleeding this doctor to death!!! bankruptcy is where he is headed.
