Always very prompt when I have questions and they are able to explain in the simplest terms. I have never had to wait for an appointment because they make room to see me when I need to be seen. Dr. Lemus always takes the time to answer all questions and takes the time to acknowledge us as individuals not just another patient.

Have 3 kids, large birth weight, through natural delivery and no complications. However, he persistently suggested I could plan the delivery date and have a c-section. I declined the first time and by the third time I asked him why this was still a topic in our conversation. He said many women do this. I found another obgyn. When setting up my account my social security number was loudly shared 3-4 times from one end of the hallway to the front desk.
