Dr Lopez Vizcarra is taking care of my mother who unfortunately suffers from dementia. This a horrible disease, and most Doctors told me not much can be done about it, he put my mother in 2 medications to slow the disease, and other medication to improve her behavior, he has always showed concerns about my mother progress, and always treats her with compassion. I would certainly recomend Dr Lopez for anyone who has relatives with this disease.

He came in. Said my records having MS meant nothing. He really laid it heavy with the guilt trip to make do something his office could have done. I told him that I did not like the guilt trip and he responded with an ultimatum. I told him that he was very rude. I Do not recommend him for MS patients.

He basically just mentioned my weight the whole time. My first time meeting him and he kept mentioning my weight and how, obese I am. By the way, I am pregnant and I am not huge, I'm average. So he did not leave a good impression.
in Modesto, CA |
Bad communication. Didn't fully explain what he was needing me to do to make the visit easier. When asked a question about my issues he made it seem as though it wasn't necessary for him to explain. He didn't greet me upon entering the exam room; and when my visit was over he didn't wait for me to fully clothe myself and pointed to the door for me to exit the exam room, so I had to finish putting my shirt on in the hallway.
