I've visited their San Dimas location a few times. Reception staff is very rude, they're always on their phones recording each other and taking pictures while these patients in the office. Very long wait. Once you're in the room she has no bedside manners. You can't even ask questions about your problem since she makes you feel so rushed.

Dr. Rivera is the best! Dr. Lopez and her both compliment each other so well... They have both been my doctors for over ten years, very trustworthy and on point. Have been with me through 4 of my pregnancies. They are both passionate about what they do and committed! If you are looking for someone to take good care of you and that you can trust this is where you wanna be

She is very rude. After 5 years all the sudden decided not to see me anymore with my 3rd pregnancy and sent me to sage brush saying I was high risk when I really wasn't. Pretty much told me to get out of her office and never come back. She has no bed side manners. I love the nurse practitioner. She was the only reason I kept going. I wouldn't recommend ever going there.

If I could no stars I would. The staff is horrible and rude. They don't care about their patience. So if I were you I'd save your time and don't schedule and appointment with this horrible office
