Patient Comments (5)
Tacoma, WA |
I really like Dr Cueva and felt that the care she provided was good. I was seen for migraines and as a yearly visit. She gave me what I needed for mild and for severe migraine. Unfortunately, after being healthy for 2 years I am no longer a patient at the clinic (likely a clinic policy, not a policy of the individual doctor). I have yet to find another doctor that I like as much as Dr Cueva.

De Cueva is very good but her staff is very rude. They refuse to let me see the doctor even when I arrived before my appointment time (though not fifteen minutes early) and I had been checked in and waited for a while. They also drop patients from doctor's list if they havent made an appointment in some time without even a phone call. you find out when you need to see the doctor again and you are told that you are not a patient. this happened to several people I know who were her patients.

Dr.Cueva is amazing! Takes the time to listen to your needs.

My mom had been going to Dr Queva for a few years. She's been permanently disabled for 20+ years. Dr Queva refused to renew my mom's handicapped placards because she wants my mom to walk more. All she thinks about is what she wants. Not what's best for her patients! Never going back to her!

First visit I was treated to Dr. Cueva's full on flu/cold as she came to work very sick, about two days later I had a full blown flu/cold. Thanks I really needed that from a doctor. Other appointments were more cordial but I still felt like I was being talked down to like I was not really in touch with what mattered to my health. I get the feeling she is more interested in making a living and not so interested in me as someone in need of her service and expertise
