Patient Comments (2)
ALEXANDRIA |
Took a family member in who has not eaten solid food in 15 days due to stroke and was told our appointment had been cancelled by the office without notice. Patient is wheel chair bound and was sent away per Dr. Oviedo. The next available appointment is in 11 days. The front desk was non-empathetic to the patient's condition. No solution or help offered to patient or concerned family - completely unacceptable.
Your appointment with us was scheduled a few days earlier for a different time and you did not keep it. We are sorry that we could not see you when you arrived without an appointment as we were fully booked helping other patients with their GI issues. Our staff directed you to the hospital, as we are not equipped to handle emergencies in the office. We hope that you feel better and if you have a medical emergency, please always go to the hospital.

Dr. Oviedo has given me fantastic care over the past 8 years. He is knowledgeable and kind. I'm always at ease when I see him. I'm confident in his abilities and trust him to make the best decisions for me. Can't say enough good things!
