What People Say About Dr. Mario Almeida, MD

Dr. Mario Almeida has been my primary doctor for a couple of decades, if not more. I can trust him and whatever he has prescribed for me, or recommended I do, has kept me healthy and happy. I highly recommend this doctor. Yes, there's a bit of wait to get an appointment and once you're in his office, to me it is worth it.

Dr Alemeida is supposed to be an eminence in Miami. His office is always jam packed with patients. He does spend a generous amount of time with you and does a thorough examination as well. I'm not sure if he's somewhat "test happy" or simply meticulous. The majority of his patients are between 70 to 90 + yrs old- walkers, wheelchairs and elders losing their balance and almost toppling over you is the ambiance. WARNING- be ready to waste 3-4 hours of your day in there. Waiting time is absurd.

He is a good doctor but his staff is extremely disorganized. They never respond to calls or requests for lab results. Appointments are not honored, as you must wait 2 hours after your appointment time ALWAYS!! Same for lab work, they tell you it is walk in anytime and in reality, you wait 1 hr to get a nurse to see you. Staff is always in small chat among themselves and not caring for efficiency or caring for patients.

He's very articulate with explanations but forgets not everyone is rehearsed on medical terms! He misdiagnosed a patient for 4 years. Had her spleen taken out, patient kept having high white blood cell counts told to take iron pills. He never investigated why her spleen had grown over 4lbs. Lots of back pains, trouble breathing, and eventually got huge growth on her neck which ointment was prescribed ,bottom line this patient had lymphoma and MARIO A ALMEIDA SUAREZ never diagnosed it!!!!
