Care Philosophy

Our practice has been serving the El Paso community since 1998 in the areas of Family Medicine, Internal Medicine, and Pediatrics.  We currently have six clinics throughout El Paso.  We take quality care very seriously and are constantly implementing new programs to raise our STARS and HEDIS scores and improve patient outcomes.  Even though our patient community is very extensive, we have a No one left behind" mentality.  We monitor patient scheduling to make sure patients are seen appropriately and reach out to those who aren't via phone, mail, and patient portal.  We work hand-in-hand with the insurance companies to reach out to members and identify those patients who are particularly at a high risk for developing complications.

This is the worst clinic I have ever been at, I've been without my blood pressure medication for a month, because I was out of town and they refused to refile it without me visiting them. Even a simple thing as a referral to a chiropractor requires him to go to an appointment first. Yet what is worse is that in almost 8 years I never saw doctor Armendariz, I always saw a NP or PA! I highly recommend you stear clear of this clinic! I've considers bringing a medical malpractice clame again them!

Worst "doctor" ever. Things are his way or the highway. Doesn't listens to patient's concerns because it is "his clinic" period! Still, his so called clinic barely has the resources needed to called a "clinic." All this people want is to make $$$ of the people that show up. This place reminds me of a fast food place where they serve junk food as fast as they can and to the most people they can. What a joke

The wait times are ridiculous. The staff can be helpful. This office feels like the Dr wants to see as many patients as possible to make the most money possible. I do not feel that this is is a good practice of medicine. The Dr orders unnecessary tests and requires unnecessary office visits to ensure billing and copays. The only reason I am here is because my insurance is not accepted at the pediatrician I have used for the past 24 years. Trust me, I am not here by choice.

Seems that all this dr is interested is in $$$. Greed at its finest. You never find him in the office you have to drive all over the city if you need a prescription because some prescriptions require a dr authorization and he has too many offices without an official dr . Preposterous service.

I am extremely disappointed with this clinic and their new Nurse Practitioners that do NOT explain what and why they are doing or ordering certain tests. I have anxiety and one of the NP's who works there DENIED my medication that is the ONLY thing that will let me sleep at night without having anxiety attacks. These NPs do NOT provide care and their bedside manner is ridiculous. Last time I went, I had to wait 5 hours!!!! All to just be told that they were not ordering my anxiety med.
