Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Gomez "I believe health maintenance requires a partnership between a physician and the patient. This partnership is based on trust, exchange of information, and willingness to commit to the ultimate goal- HEALTH. As a rheumatologist, I take care of patients with arthritis, systemic lupus, erythematosus, fibromyalgia, and other diseases with musculoskeletal manifestations. Because most of these illnesses are chronic diseases, a stable relationship between physician and patient is very important. I speak spanish fluently and welcome spanish speaking patients."

Patient Comments (3)

This doctor's professionalism is absolutely horrible! My mother was referred to her and she scheduled her first appointment. She wanted 4 hours and was told she would not be seen because the doctor had to leave. This is very unprofessional and not acceptable!

I had to wait over three hours to see the doctor. Based on the other people in the waiting room. I got the impression this was not a rare occurrence. Not once did the doctor apologize for making me wait. The doctor should learn how to schedule patients.
