Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Carreno "I believe good patient care cannot be rushed! I try not to perform assembly line medical care. If you see me you may usually have to wait as I may not always be running on time; HOWEVER, you can rest assured you will be given the time and treatment your given condition requires. I will always do my utmost to assure you are well educated about your ear, nose, and throat condition; so that you can equally partake in the decision making process your healthcare requires."

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!!
