Okeechobee, FL |
Performed a nerve test knowing my insurance (medicare) would not cover it. Office staff is rude and wait times are over an hour.
Miami, FL |
His office is a joke. Staff is completely rude and clueless, left hand never knows what the right hand is doing and Mrs. Aldana makes all the rules and runs the "ship." Beware, if you have a PPO insurance (which does not require authorization or referral from your primary) their office still requires one. Doctor is just "weird & odd" Not the best experience ever, 1st and only visit. Will NEVER go back.

this is a follow up to previous reviews. Drove down to ft Pierce 30 miles to pic up med records as going to see another Dr Got home only to find no M R I report on skull Office is as disorganized as the Dr
Altamonte Springs, FL |
I had seen him previously and it wasn't that bad but he's the only neurologist here. He treated me with thinly vieled contempt, he kept telling me when I asked him what was wrong that I(referring to me) have a mental health history. Yes, I do, it's under control now. I am working hard and am on meds, should I run into the bushes and kill myself, what is wrong with him? I'm sure he takes other people with chronic problems, is it ok now to openly discriminate against someone for something they

He is an excellent Doctor, I had many experiences with different Doctors and he cares so much for his patients. Will not go anywhere else!!
