What People Say About Dr. Francisco Dieguez, MD
Reply Flag
Get ready to wait. I've been coming here for years and it's always been the same . Too many patients in the waiting room. If the appointment is for 1 expect to see the doctor 2-3 hours later. This is not an exaggeration. Please note that this wait time is for a regular check where you go in and the doctor sees you for a few minutes. The wait for the stress tesst is even longer. I arrived at 7 o'clock for the stress test and didn't get seen till 9 am. After that it takes another 4 hours.
