Dr. Ochoa and her staff provided excellent services when I really needed them. I was a first time patient and needed immediate attention to my medical condition. I was scheduled to fly out of town on a Sunday. I called her office on the Friday before my departure and her staff arranged their schedules to see me that day. This type of response hardly ever happens with first time patients. Never in a hurry, Dr. Ochoa took the time to explain my diagnosis even as time passed on a Friday afternoon and the office emptying of patients. I highly recommend Dr. Ochoa because she truly exemplifies the Hippocratic oath.
