Patient Comments (3)
No medical records were ever provided, even after numerous requests. Totally illegal and unprofessional. In todays day, physicians still have hand written notes only? No front desk stuff available. Phone calls are returned after 2-3 days, always anonymously. Numerous times, Dr. Garcia-Leyva wasn't on the premises at prior scheduled time of the appointment or no phone called was made to cancel the appointment. Is that possible? I NEVER ENCOUNTERED THIS BEHAVIOUR with any other medical provider.

If this woman is any indication of the standards that our country is holding our mental health professionals to, then we are all in trouble. Inhumane, careless and malicious. This is truly someone who should be reported and forced to cease practicing. Not surprising that the hospital she works in has been reported numerous times for patient mistreatment. I don't doubt she played a part in those reports. Stay far away.

Don't waste your time! She forgot appt. date/time, never answers her phone, all calls go to voicemail. She cancelled first appt. and did not, in any way, seem to care about my husband's health care needs. Had to call and leave three messages on three different dates to schedule initial appt. She then called at a later date to say she had no scheduled appt. Turns out she had written down the wrong date! Then, she had someone call to cancel appt. I expect MUCH MORE for the care of my loved one!
