What People Say About Dr. Luis Navazo, MD

I wish I could give zero stars on behalf of my father who has been a patient of Dr. Navazo. In person, Dr. Navazo listens patientlyl and compassionately and seemed to have appropriate solutions. BUT the office is disorganized and countless lack of follow-up & 50% failure to return calls. Also, a staff member reported an *incorrect* diagnosis that resulted in the patient being rejected from assisted living. Result: unnecessary physical pain, depression, frustration and many wasted hours.

Dr. Navazo is a very caring physician. My father has multiple health issues and sees various doctors, and I have never had a doctor act as concerned and interested in my fathers care as Dr. Navazo. He takes as much time as needed to talk and explain my fathers health situation to us, which is very comforting. Also, if you need an appointment for an urgent matter, the office is typically able to get you in with one of their physicians in 1-2 days. I would highly recommend this doctor.

This doctor was very arrogant, demeaning to his employees, and judgmental towards my care. I would not go to this highly unethical doctor, even if it was an emergency.

I deal with Dr. Navazo personally and whenever I have a question, I email the staff (they have new people so they respond faster now)& Dr. Navazo calls back to me personally. Each time I've met with him (my mom's mobile doc) he has been pleasant, thorough, accommodating. He never rushes through his exams with his patients; I watch him when he is meeting with them at my mom's assisted living house. He is kind and gentle esp as they are all seniors. He comes to the assisted living house for exams.

I have personally worked in healthcare for 24 yrs. I understand that this is "a teaching office", but whom ever is doing the teaching is doing a huge disservice to these students and the community they serve. This IS NOT the way an office should be ran. It usually takes a minimum of a week to hear back from them even if your matter is urgent.

I saw the nurse who made a lot of promises regarding taking over from my current primary care physician. However, the doctor did not consider my past medical history at all and refused to follow through on the nurses promises. this is not a practice that I would ever consider using again due to the unreliability and stress this has caused me. They also canceled on me twice for a home visit and I had to rearrange my schedule for the third visit when they were going to cancel again.
