Patient Comments (2)
in Coral Gables, FL |
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.
in Coral gables, FL |
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!!!!
