    READ THIS IF YOU CAN'T CONTACT THEM BY PHONE! I tried calling them many times without success. THIS TIME I USED THEIR PATIENT FUSION WEBPAGE to book and appointment and guess what, they called me back! yay! I just came back from their office and they explained that the managing company that takes care of the calls has messed it up big time. They were very nice and Dr. Medina's assistant apologized for the all the problems. (apologies accepted because Dr. Medina was AWESOME as always!!!!).

    Dr has charged $150 for follow up visit to read health lab tests results. My insurance contracted rate is $105 and the Dr would not take any phone call, would not see me when visiting clinic and would not reply to any messages when trying to get the $45 refund my insurance has told me he owes me.

    Dr José Medina is great. Very profesional, knowledgeable and responsible. I had been seen him for a few years now. Since the time his office was a pleasure. It had a personal caring service, kind of a little town doctor. But now, all changed. They do not pick up the phone. Don't respond to refills requests and you can't passed the fort they built around him. It is a pitty that such a great doctor is wasted behind an office manager that makes me give him only one star.

    He may be a great Dr. I'll never know. I couldn't get passed the 5 phone calls and messages left to try to make an appointment. They claim they will answer calls within 24 hours. I spoke to 2 receptionists and left messages that went unanswered. Very unprofessional
