What People Say About Dr. Luis Vasquez, MD
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful

Dr. Vasquez said, "Dear patient, first I would like you to inform yourself what a Rheumatologist is". Yes sir, I know. I was referred to you by my GP. Dr. Vasquez said, "I remember we asked you If you had visited a dermatology clinic and you said no". As I told you, twice, I started with my dermatologist, who told me to go to my GP, who referred me to you. But I do want to thank you for examining me AFTER you told me my itchy, burning scalp and hair loss were not serious enough to treat now.

Had a great visit with Dr. Vasquez. Office was super nice and didn't have to wait an excessive amount of time. He seems like he genuinely cares about making you feel better, too. Helped a lot with my pain that many other doctors I went to couldn't figure out. I trust him completely!

First: Before the visit, the secretary told me it would be copay + 20%, which was fine. At the end of the visit, they said it was copay + 100%. So approximately $100 became $400 out of pocket, immediately. Dr. Vasquez didn't listen to my symptoms well, or seem to care. His "exam" (jerking/moving my hands around painfully) caused me to leave worse than before. No recommendations given. Last, they failed to send labs/x-rays to my doctor after 2 requests. I'm getting a referral to another doctor.

I saw Dr. Vasquez for the first time about a month ago and had follow up today. The office is very nice, the staff are equally competent and friendly and Dr. Vasquez is very thorough. He did several diagnostic tests to pinpoint my problems and have me an injection for my painful shoulder. The next day most of that pain was gone! You will be well taken care of, I highly recommend him.

Dr. Vasquez is the best Rheumatologist I've seen he saved my life, I had gone to multiple other doctors and all they did was prescribe medicine to treat my symptoms, but non knew what I had. From the first moment I saw him, he knew exactly what I had and the specific treatment. He took me off all the other medicines that where actually harming me. I feel like a new person now. Thank you Dr. Vasquez!

I am always nervous going to doctors appointments. This office has the friendliest and most courteous staff, they make me feel at ease as soon as I walk in through the door. I have had many injections, he is very kind, gentle and understanding about my pain. I would definitely recommend Dr. Vasquez to anyone who is needing quality care.

What an awesome Doctor! I felt at ease right away after meeting Dr. Vasquez. His easy going personality made me feel very comfortable. He answers my questions and explains things in a very clear and understandable way. He does not get in a hurry and rush on to the next patient, he takes his time to make sure you have a high quality visit! He is definitely one of my favorite doctors and I highly recommend him to everyone I know!!

I would not recomend this group because they are only in this practice for money first and peitents second period. I will give my corisponance emails to anyone to see my point. I went to see Vasquez and as soon as it became something out of the norm he said there is nothing he can do for me. I do have the email from Vasquez to support this. They even forgot me for a mo. but when it came time to charge me for a visit they remembered me. It took a mo. to get my resaults that's even with me calling
