I would rate Dr. Baquerizo 10 stars if I could. He is an excellent doctor with a great insight. He is reliable and trustworthy. He may seem strict and direct, but I can tell from personal experience that he has kindest heart. He derives joy from his patients improvement and truly cares. I'm a medical professional and also his patient for the past 20 yrs. I highly recommend him to my relatives, friends and patients

He told my grandmother she can lose weight by eating once a day knowing she's diabetic and if her blood sugar dropped it would be fine cause it would go back up eventually

Visited this well known endocrinologist and was very disappointed. Walked in, looked at my blood work (copies I brought), asked why I was even there and asked that I return in a year. Didn't even let me answer his question as he walked out, very disappointing.
