I am a new patient, and after my first visit I was very glad to have made the decision to come to him. As an MS victim of 13 years, in need of a new doctor, he is a top choice for me. Very well educated and up to date on how many different mechanisms can affect others. Being a former patient of the master doctor John Susac, (RIP) and , now to learn that doctor Cuervo and Susac were friends and collegues, recieved similar instruction from the greats, I feel I've come back home. i trust him 100%

Dr. Cuervo is absolutely wonderful. He is up to date on the latest research and extremely intelligent. I'm in the medical field so I understand medical jargon but he can also explain to anyone so they can understand exactly what is going on. He takes the time to listen to you as a patient. I have never felt like a number to him and never felt rushed while having an appt. He changed my life for the better. :) Wish he could be my primary care doctor as well. :)

I've been patient here for 20 years. Takes the time to listen to your concerns and answer all questions. I feel.confident in his expertise and judgement. After I spoke to him about a staff member that I thought did not handle an issue properly, the doctor handled the problem professionally.

Office staff extremely unprofessional esp the drs wife, they are rude and raise their voices at patients. Arraogant beyond belief, the dr is spineless and would not take a stand for the right thing.
