    As others commented, I did have to wait a little long -but Dr. Deshazo was very personable, and struck me as exceptionally knowledgeable and compassionate. Additionally, he was very patient with me, taking the time to answer all me questions and explain things to my satisfaction -the complete opposite of a "rush me in and out as quickly as possible" mindset. From what I can see, his excellent reputation is well-deserved -GuitarMark in Las Vegas

    Why Does Experience Matter?

    Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.

    Dr. Deshazo's Care Philosophy

    As a primary care physician, I believe in Benjamin Franklin's motto: "An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure." Mr. Franklin did not realize how much a "pound of cure" would cost today. I believe in a holistic approach to Health Care in which the body has the capacity to heal itself if homeostasis is achieved. We must be proactive in that the physician and patient are a team dedicated to disease prevention and quality of life improvement. Health is the utmost blessing from God.
