Dr Valencia himself is a great doctor & is great with children. His admin staff is AWFUL! They call you a few days before your appt to tell you they need to reschedule you due to some reason. Then tell you the next appt is months away. When you do show up to the appt, expect to wait at least 2hrs there before seeing the Dr. Watch your referrals: the admin won't tell you your referral expired, even though they rescheduled the appt outside the referral auth dates. It's "not their job."

Well we waited for an hour past our appointment time in the waiting room, I had to talk to the reception staff so they knew (which they gave me a lot of attitude for), after which we sat in the tech room in the back for another 45 minutes before we saw the Doctor. This happens EVERYTIME we had an appointment they actually kept. We have had 3 appointments canceled without any notice or claims that they didn't make an appointment for us. Didn't notify us when our referral had expired.
