The absolute worst medical staff in Laredo. All of the assistants are arrogant and disrespectful! Not to mention the terrible practice of the physicians. It's taken 5 visits to conclude that a surgical procedure needs to be done to determine blockage, if any, in an artery. I do not recommend! Do not trust these people and go elsewhere!!

nurses do logins EKGs blood test etc, 1 nurse does all, very professional and efficient. I use other doctor for the talking, he calls in r cigarroa for the serious work. cigarroa is in high demand so if need do alot of talking with doctor, use 2 like I do. works out well.

If I could give Dr. Cigarroa a Negative rating, I would! This man is abusing the system and defrauding the insurance & medicare systems! Admitted my mom via the ER for a urinary tract infection and NEVER stepped foot in her hospital room after six days!!!! Yet he scheduled her for a pacemaker! He told my mother before putting her in the hospital that she had a 95% blockage in one of her coronary arteries. Cardiac Cath after switching docs showed NO blockage! AVOID AT ALL COSTS!
