Zero stars! This whole office is garbage. It takes over a week just to get one appointment. Then when you call them out on it they refuse to see you. They promised to see him on a Thursday. So he came from out of town , he’s a college student so they wasted a whole week of his time when he could’ve been seen by another doctor and gas and then when we asked them what the holdup was the actual doctor (George Benavides)refused to see him for no explanation other than he has major anger issues because I called them out on their Incompetency. Don’t waste your time. And they WILL waste your time.

Highly recommended. I have seen him over a period of years. Once I was concerned about a growth on my chest and he did minor surgery and biopsied it and it turned out to be squamous cell cancer. I was so thankful he acted quickly and didn't just refer me to a dermatologist.

Lost touch with the oath he took to provide service to his patients. Doesn't take the time to hear your concerns. You're are lucky if you get a five minute visit. He just there to get as many patients ($$)through he can. I didn't know Doctors worked on commission. Find another doctor.

Does not listen to patient complaints. When you try to explain what's going on he brushes it off or if you are firm tells you he will order testing just to "pacify you", not because he believes your concerns are valid or warrant follow up.
