What People Say About Dr. Nestor Galvez-Jimenez, MD
Reply
I had a 9am appointment with Dr Galvez. At 9.02 the PA came and led me to the room where she performed, very well, the first part of the EMG. On leaving she warned us that Dr Galvez was “delayed” and I might have to wait. That wait turned out to be 2 hours 5 minutes! When the Dr. finally appeared there was not even a “good morning” much less an apology for being over 2 hours late! Terrible service and bed side manner!

Dr. Gálvez has been great. After being shuffled around w/other Neurologists, I felt Dr. Gálvez stepped in and took the bull by the horns.
