I'm new to El Paso so I had no idea what doctor I should call for an appointment. Lucky for me I noticed the building on N. Mesa where Dr. Munoz is located. Strictly by chance I went in and made an appointment with him. Turns out it was my lucky day! I could not have asked for anyone more...more

Awesome doctor that takes his time with the patients. He doesn't push them out the door. Took his time and answered all my moms questions. And also took great care of my dad. I wouldn't trust any other doctor.

Dr. Munoz is both knowledgeable and caring. He explains procedures and results clearly and spends time answering questions. His staff are welcoming and caring. Martha at the front desk dismisses questions most often and rushes people along. So she is the least friendly, helpful and courteous...more
