I highly recommend Dr. Carreno to family and friend s anytime. .He is highly knowledgeable not only in his field but other fields of medicine. Explains everything regarding the treatment and outcome thoroughly. i presume that is why he gets behind in his schedule because he is very thorough. He does not rush. I trust every decision he makes, listens and answers questions with ease. The staff is very friendly and accommodating. The office is very clean and comfortable. I did not have to wait long

I understand taking your time with each patient is good, however, when your appointment is at 2:45PM & your sitting outside & its 4:34PM is ridiculous. Your staff should also let your patients know that you are running extremely late.

Terrible bedside manner.The gentlemen never answered any of my questions and seemed annoyed to be there.I understand that the medical field is an extremely challenging profession, but one would expect some knowledge of prescribing medication-he had doubts; which is human.But what is truly disheartening is the fact that he was not concerned about wether he was right or wrong.I will not be going back, and neither will my numerous fellow co-workers.His staff at lead tries.

I would highly recommend Dr. Carreno. Today was the first time I went to see him. The wait time was quick and easy. The Doctor was very professional, courteous and made me feel comfortable. The nurse was super nice and friendly. When doctor Carreno came to see me he took his time with my medical issue and resolved it very quickly, I feel SO relieved now. A BIG Thank you, Doctor!!
