in San Diego, CA |
Dr. Cuellar shows a false sense of compassion. He looks at only 1 aspect of a medical conplaint and if he can't figure it out, there must be nothing wrong. Additionally, he pushes his healthful eating diet on everyone.

He was very caring and listened to me explain my problems. With his recommendations and medications my reflux problem went away.
