This Doctor has no regard for his patients waiting, waiting, waiting to have him show up in the procedure room. It is a behavior that the Medical Centers need to address with him - his disregard for his patients time, comfort, and the punishment he deals out with his tardy appearance. I and others have been required to get to the Hospital at 0615 for prep and in my case, he finally appeared in the procedure room for my heart procedure at 11:15, I had been strapped down for 45 minutes.

My apt was yesterday, 02/12/2016 @ 2:00 pm. I was and am still feeling very lightheaded, dizzy, shortness of breath, etc., my husband had to take time off work to drive me to dr's appointment as unable to drive. Due to my feeling so ill was late to my appointment by 24 minutes. I got to the office I checked in and was called by front personnel to advise Dr. Eguia's nurse (Mona) had told them to tell me the dr would not see me as I was late and had to reschedule apt. Very unethical practice.

Outstanding Dr, while it takes a while to see Dr Eguia on appt. day, he takes time to talk with his patients so he is worth waiting for, do take reading material. I have never felt rushed once you met with him, he is patience with his patients - you actually see him every time not someone else in the office. Very good surgeon, resolved my issue; I've heard that he is the doctor that other doctors send their own family members to, overall a skilled specialist. He regularly keep late hours.
