Top-notch doctor! Dr. Munoz’s extensive background in Western and Eastern medicine makes his practice a unique, efficient, quality, stress-free, healthy experience for patients. I loved my visit at the Oasis center, and experienced 2 hours of customized quality healthy care. If you are looking for highest quality in health care/integrative medicine, gift yourself an appointment with Dr. Munoz. The Oasis Center will exceed your expectations. Thank you, Dr. Munoz!!

They make you wait almost an hour and a half The doctor was careless didn't even spend 20 seconds with me He left me and I have to wait for Muriel because he didn't even ask me nothing I was picking up exam and I don't even understand them Do yourself a favor and look for another doctor

My appointment was at 3:00pm, and I was seen at 4:30. I have 3 chronic conditions, and my husband drove there. When Dr. Munoz came into the room, the first words out of his mouth were: " your conditions are very hard to treat". True, but not encouraging at all. When I tried to ask him ONE question, after he ordered a bunch of lab tests, he said to my face: " I don't have time for that". When I repeated it back to him, " oh so u don't have time?", he just walked out of the room!! HORRIBLE!!!!

What an amazing doctor and staff. Everyone was polite knowledgeable along with having all the equipment needed in his office without having to run around town to different offices. I have finally found a place and doctor I feel at home with. Thank you

I do not recommend this doctor at all. He misdiagnosed me and when I found out my correct diagnoses with another doctor he did not want to be involve in helping me. I called several times and he never called back. Also his appointments are very short and doesn't listen to the patients. Beware!

Dr. Munoz and his staff are welcoming and sincerely are concerned with you and your needs. Dr. Munoz listens to you its not just in and out in only 3 minutes like most doctors. He looks at the whole picture not just the small picture. His office is the cleanest most organized office I have been to In years. I will be back and continue to see his as long as he is in practice in the south Florida area. I drive from Boca and every minute is worth it.

I was able to make an appointment 3 days after calling. His staff was delightful helpful and caring the girls in the front office were efficient and always smiling while juggling many things. The nurses were kind and gentle. Dr. Munoz was amazing, I had heard so many wonderful things about him I am sorry I did not go to see him sooner, if I had I night have felt better sooner and had a better handle on my Lupus. He is truly a healer, old school doctor, listens to what you say, takes the time.

Dr Munoz and his staff really listen and care they take the time needed to get to the problem and I trust his opinion 100%. The best doctor I have seen in years.
Aventura, FL |
Physician w/ Lupus +Cardiolipin syn -waxing/waning symptoms & long h/o life-threatening complications. My education/career placed me in 16 diff states over the past 20 yrs, allowing me the great fortune to be treated by every top Lupus specialist in this country. SLE is complex, unpredictable, and at times, incredibly scary - and I trust/respect Dr. Munoz's opinion-ideas as much, if not more than any other rheum I have seen. I also value his knowledge-use of complimentary/alternative medicine
in Hialeah, FL |
I was impressed by the reviews and I decided to see Dr. Munoz, the appointment took me almost a month in advance. Once I arrived to the office,the receptionist Andrea, was helpful. My appt was at 3 pm but then instead to see Dr. Munoz, I was seen by his PA, at 4 pm, later I was told to wait for having blood work and a sonogram that would take place in the room soon, but it took almost 50min. After the blood test, my arm was bleeding staining all my clothes and the receptionist came to help me
