Please do not go see this money Hoover. My PCP referred me to him as Fibromyalgia was a suspect for the months of horrible pain I have suffered. Hector Mena lists fibro as a specialty that he treats on his online profile. 1st visit was spent mostly with a female Dr. 15 mins with Mena He told me I had fibromyalgia and gave me 2 pages to read about it. Lots of blood tests! X ray. Next visit he told me he DIAGNOSES fibro but doesn't TREAT it. Said I should go back to my PCP! Zero help. 0 care

My appt was at 12, told to arrive early for forms. Got there at 1115. Didn't get called back until 1. He was absolutely no help. Told me my symptoms were not immune related even though my immune system is very suppressed, I've recently developed severe hypersensitivity to metals. Didn't listen to half of what I was trying to tell him, told me I had a lot of medical things wrong and most dr's don't want to deal with that. Told me to go back to my PCP. I left completely frustrated and in tears.
