Dr. Pedroza helped my wife when no-one else could. He gave us both hope after seeing so many doctors that said there was nothing wrong. He (Dr. P) tested and went so far as to do EXTENDED testing. He found the problem and solved it!

I was referred to Dr pedroza. His wait time is 2.5 hrs. This is too long. Do better Dr pedroza. Elderly patients should not have to wait this long. I am currently in the waiting room. My appt is for 11:15. They just called patients scheduled for 9am to the back. Not cool.

Rude staff and long wait. People fell asleep in the waiting room. Took 2 1/2 hours. Doctor leaves patient doors open where I could hear the doctor and staff interact with other patients.
