What People Say About Dr. Enrique Daza-Racines, MD
Dr Daza performed emergency surgery in our son at Suburban Hospital. Dr Daza is an excellent surgeon. My disappointment is with his office for follow up. The woman taking appointments and running the office is abrupt, difficult to reach via phone, mixes up appointments and then blames others, rude... what more can I say: first impressions tell a lot about a business. This is a huge turn off. Dr Daza is focused on payment first , as well. He does not take insurance. Be forewarned in that.

This is by far the worse doctors office I have ever been to. Yesinia has an extremely nasty attitude. She should NOT be in the medical field, she is not friendly at all, refuses to assist with patients needs and has the nerve to yell at you over the phone. Dr. Data is ok but he is not the friendliest.
