Patient Comments (6)
in Chula Vista, Ca |
Worst office visit ever! Who in their right mind makes a patient wait for over an hour because he's too busy socializing with friends! Ridiculous! I'll NEVER come here again! Rude Dirty Too long of a wait

It is surprising that there is still a functioning medical practice made available to this 'doctor'. He seemed inattentive and more into what he had to say than listening to the patient. I took one of my parents in and we will be looking for a new doctor as I assume he practices medicine for the money and not for the patients. Truly a disappointment and not the kind of person who provides support and great medical care for a sick loved one. Some of his staff was nice though.

Have been seeing Dr. Juarez-Uribe for many years. Love him and his caring staff.

My parents have been seeing Dr. Juarez for the past 15 years. My mother, in particular, would not be alive today without his keen insight and kind heart. Dr. Juarez-Uribe is what I would like to call a human doctor. Always positive and always willing to help.

Have been seeing this doctor for many, many years. He is excellent. Very knowledgable about the field of Internal Medicine and Cardiology. Loves to tell jokes and keep the patients at ease.
in Chula Visya, CA |
He is an excellent physician. He really takes time to get to know the patient as an individual. Greatly understands the field of Medicine as he has been practicing for quite some time. He also has a natural ability to pay attention to detail. Not to mention, he has a superb sense of humor. Highly recommend Dr. Juarez-Uribe (whom I've been with for the past 10 years).
