Dr. Machuca was the second pulmonologist i visited. I did not have a good experience with the first. I was suffering from acute bronchitis and mild asthma. Dr. Machuca and I agreed on an aggressive course of treatment to get my symptoms under control She followed up with me post visit and revisited the treatment in the follow up visit in her office. She is very knowledgeable, caring and efficient. Her staff is efficient and pleasant. I would highly recommend her!

She is very caring and concerned with the health of her patients. Any problems which may have occurred since last visit she want to hear if the problem persists or has it stopped. She carefully takes notes of all that is said to her. Yes, I would and do recommend her to others.

I have had 5 appointments with Dr. Machuca over the past year. All of my visits have been on time. Dr. Machuca and her staff make you feel most welcome with their courteousness and professionalism. What I like the most about the doctor is that I never have felt rushed. When I am there she takes her time in examining me and then patiently answers all my questions. I wish all my other doctors were like this. This is the way the practice of medicine should be.

Building, ladies room and her office were spotless. Staff friendly yet highly efficient. Very short wait times. Doctor herself was personable and professional. No rash diagnoses. Explained her thinking. Left some decisions up to me.

After experiencing a life threatening complication saw another pulmonologist with minimal bedside manner and a non-chalant attitude. I went to see Dr. Machuca and was overwhelmed with emotion at her caring, nurturing, and all around professionalism.
