Patient Comments (2)
in San Diego, CA |
This clinic does not return phone calls. I have waited 4 days and still not call back to schedule. I am now forced to go to the ER. During my last visit the front desk Team member was rude and I observed this with other patient as well. To say she was snippy is kindness. I'v lost trust in this physician provider.
in Palm Springs, CA |
Dr. Goicoechea reviewed my labs that were ordered by a naturopath and dismissed the presenting symptoms (sudden psoriasis breakout w/ no family history, candida overgrowth and deficient thyroid and adrenal function). It took another two years of bouncing around Scripps doctors until I was finally diagnosed with Lyme disease. If he had recognized the symptoms, perhaps I wouldn't be also dealing with pituitary deficiency, depressed immune system and sepsis.
