Patient Comments (2)
in Valley Springs, CA |
Awsome doctor! The best! I had been preauthorized with 3 other providers and kept cancelling because I was not confident in the providers or their staff. Dr. Machado was thorough and did a complete exam on me. Her follow through and bedside manner are great. Her staff is awesome too! I would recommend her in a heart beat!
My husband received a lap band with Dr. Machado and had lost over 50 lbs so far. She is so down to earth and made us feel comfortable right away. She and her team are fabulous, we are very lucky to have found her! She is easy to get ahold of, and the wait times at the office are minimal. I would highly recommend her to anyone!
