This doctor has no concern for her patients, but rather making money off of them. I sat in the waiting room for about 30 minutes past my apt time. However, once she was in the room, she seemed to just care about getting me in and out as quickly as possible without even listening to any of my concerns. I went ahead and made an apt for a year later (against my better judgment) but received a call the day before stating they were canceling my apt due to a balance in collections, which I knew had to be an error. After doing some research, I found where the bill had been paid 6 months prior and called to discuss. They stated they had no record but I have the bank statement to prove where they charged me. Stated they needed to check with the dr to see if I could keep my apt. I told them to forget it, I would go somewhere else where I was treated fairly and properly.

One of the coldest, heartless, demanding, doctors I've ever encountered. She's all about making money and her employees are treated like dogs. I would never recommend patients seeing such a terrible person or anyone looking for a job run or be prepared to be screamed at.

I was at Dr Canizares’s office yesterday for my yearly skin check. I have a history of melanoma. She couldn’t be more thorough. She treats you with upmost kindness and is very professional. She did take some biopsies in the office while I was there. She is very gentle and caring and explains everything very well.

I can only account for my first time visit, but I called for an all-over mole check and they got in my relatively quickly. The wait wasn’t unusual for a doctor. The staff was very friendly to me. Dr. Canizares was quick - but efficient. She removed several suspicious moles and explained everything as it was done. One of the nurses, in particular, was very calming and kind. I have to say - I read some reviews while waiting in then waiting room for my visit, and I almost left. Glad I didn’t!

In-network doctor but WITHOUT permission they sent testing to out-of-network lab resulting in a $3600 lab bill! THEY NEVER ANSWER THEIR PHONE! I do NOT recommend!

I have been trying for 4 days to call their office to make an appointment and ask about my bill. Not once has anyone answered the phone, and their voicemail message does not say their business hours. They do return my calls, but I keep missing it and playing voicemail tag. When I try to call again NO ONE ANSWERS. I'll make an appointment elsewhere.
