Dont even waste your time going out there. I did not meet with whom I thought I would meet, instead I waited 4 hours to meet with someone who did not tell me his name, he spent more time on the computer and not reviewing my MRI'S nor X Ray,s. I would not recommend this MD to my worse enemy, in addition since they were in my insurance network they tried to charge a huge amount of services not provided to my insurance company. Without a doubt my worse MDs visit ever!!! They should not be calling themselves healers, when in fact they do quite the opposite...

I have been a patient of Dr. Serpa for 17 years. I have severe trigeminal neuralgia that gives me horrific pain. I receive nerve blocks about 4 times a year. I can function and live with out pain thanks to him. I really cannot say enough about his kindness and professionalism. He gave me my life back!! His Team is excellent and delivers great care and attention. Thank you to him and Team!! t

I had an appt with Dr. Serpa today. Instead the Nurse Practitioner comes in the room empty handed, no chart. Nothing. I asked him if he had seen the results of the MRI that I provided his office an hour before my appt and he said what MRI. The office staff failed to provide the nurse practitioner with a copy of my MRI. I my opinion, Dr. Serpa’s office is unprepared and incompetent. I do not plan to return to this office. The nurse practitioner did not like what I said and and refused to see me.
