She is very caring and really takes her time to make sure you know that your health needs are met. The staff is extremely friendly and her Nurse Practitioner is great as well. I never have any complaints. I have been seeing her for about 8-9 years now. Now my husband goes, my in-laws, my mother and friends.

The special and swift care in which Dr. Fuentes insisted on performing her medical expertise on me, Eudelia Garcia, was absolutely admired and appreciated! Her actions to setting appointments with the right specialists concerning my condition was top priority and top notch! Dr. Fuentes made time in getting me seen immediately and because of that, I'm in the best health condition. I cannot thank Dr. Fuentes enough! You're the best Dr. I have EVER had! God Bless you and your staff.??????????
