Patient Comments (3)
My mom had to go in for a stress test. She has been to Dr. Lucero several times before and really likes him. Anna who works in his office is awful!! She is nasty to the patients and family. Other patients waiting with my mom were talking about how mean she. She will definitely scare his patients away. If you can’t be kind and compassionate, don’t work around people, especially in health care. My mom said she won’t go back. My review is based on my mom’s dealing with Anna. Dr. Lucero was not in.

I say no stars but it makes me put 1. I was recently released from the hospital and asked to follow up with wexford cardiology. I made the appointment, and no one told me that if I couldn't make it, then they wouldn't see me at all as a patient. I have a 10mo old son, and his baby sitter canceled at the last minute. I called the same day as my app to reschedule it, and this "nurse" got on the phone, and very rudely told me I can't reschedule. She was so rude, she shouldn't be working with ppl

I liked Dr. Lucero's straight-to-the-point manner of dealing with my cardiac issues. He was also very helpful in answering all of my many questions in great detail. Also very helpful in answering Q's when I need to call in to know something fairly quickly. Great attitude, too. Very friendly.
