First off it takes about 2 months to get an appointment, even as an existing patient. Once you arrive at your appointment be prepared to wait about 90 minutes after your appointment time to see Dr. Nunez. He referred me for tests that weren’t really needed and after each test would tell me to come back in 3 months and then when order a new test even though I was still having GI problems. After the last test, I waited over 3 weeks for the results and the excuse for him not giving me the results was he hasn’t had time to look over the results??? Do yourself a favor and drive to the medical center.

The staff lies. The doctor will drop any of your medication without any notice or care of the consequences. The doctor belittles things. They do not listen very well but charge enough for your time with them. 7 year patient and I'm fed up and changing. Dr. Nunez is not the same doctor when I first saw him. It's a shame.

There are not enough characters to describe my disgust with this office. ?Dr. Nunez ?seems like a good doctor, but dealing with his staff is simply not worth the hassle. Never have I experienced such an incompetent and rude staff. Once the office manager hung up on me when I refused to change the appointment time she had given me just hours earlier. They didn't have a record of the rx he prescribed me! You will wait at least a minimum of 75 minutes PAST your appointment time to see the dr.

On 8/11/16 I had an appointment for 2:30 PM. I arrived early. At 4:05 PM I had still NOT seen the doctor so I had to leave due to thme constraints. I rescheduled for 9/29/16 at 10:45 Am. I arrived for this appointment early and was told the doctor would see me in a few minutes. Again I waited for and hour and left the waiting room, there were still 2 patients there that were there when I arrived. The woman at the desk just shrugged her shoulders and closed the window when I told her I had to le
