    It's really refreshing to find a doctor who seems legitimately concerned about the health of his patients. I felt that way with Dr. Jorge. Very friendly, down to earth and knowlegeable. Takes time to listen and doesn't lecture.

    My husband is a new patient and he loves this man. He listened and was down to earth unlike some who act like they are doing you a favor and rush you out . The wait wasn't long at all and the staff was helpful as well as making you feel appreciated and fun too. They made you feel relaxed, like being with your friends. I too will be going there soon! It's so hard to find a doctor you like .

    Dr. Contreras is the best doctor my husband and I have been to. He has successfully gotten my husbands migraines under control when other doctors couldn't. He takes the time to listen to his patients. I will be switching to him very soon.

    This is the worst Doctor I have ever encountered. My mom is a patient of his and he is very rude. The nurse staff is rude and make you feel like a burden. Nothing gets taken care of. The nurses have yelled at my mother in the past and hung up on her a couple times. The doctor is just as bad. Please save yourself the misery and pick another doctor.

    This Dr. has been our entire family's GP for almost 30 years. While he always seems pleasant and charming, behind that facade is the other side of this Dr.. It is a common practice for many years, you make an appoint and arrive on time. I and other members of my family have been left in the lobby for up to two hours after our appointment time. As I said, this is common practice. He will appear outraged that you had to wait so long but, just like his charming facade, his outrage is also a facade.
