I was new to the area and in need of a doctor. Youens and Duchicela Clinic came highly recommended by several people. I was informed any doctor at this facility would be a great choice. They were right! I chose to see Dr. J. Duchicela. He was very, kind, compassionate and informative. I felt like a person not a number. The staff was super friendly! I will forever be his patient. We're very fortunate to have a doctor/facility in the area of this magnitude.

Doctor Duchicela is affable, affordable, very able and approachable. They take walk-ins and you can be seen without any appointment if it is urgent. He knows what being a family medicine physician means. He knows you, your family your background. Do not hesitate to have him as your doctor.

My parents see Dr. Jorge Duchicela. They have repeatedly had to wait over an hour to see the Dr. When they do see him, he is in a hurry and rarely remembers why he told them to come in for another appt . He asks my Dad to come in every month, to include blood tests which have the same result. In addition, issues are not addressed. He was given an MME at my urging. After, the worker said "The Dr said you have mod. to severe memory loss", and we were dismissed. No expl., no referral. Seriously?
