What People Say About Dr. Ricardo Serrano, MD
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful

My mother has been a patient with this doctor for a little while now and the entire office is absolutely HORRIBLE. The women in the office are so RUDE and act like their patients are a huge inconvenience, particularly, Mrs. Serrano (his wife!). It is appalling to fathom a place that is supposed to HELP people and instead treats them so rudely. My mother who is in immense pain was trying to speak to Mrs. Serrano and she dismissed her like a peasant. The actual Dr. Serrano is also no good. He prescribed my mother adderall (a stimulant) and she has a heart murmur, he then told her not to tell her cardiologist about this- WHY?!? He also forgets to check important things, like my mom's ears. She has vertigo, a huge source of pain for her, and the man forgets to check that. DO NOT GO TO THIS PLACE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Dr. Serrano and his staff are excellent! We were here from out of town and needed a doctor. They staff was able to give us an appointment very quickly and take care of allour needs. The staff and Dr. Serrano were all very personable, friendly and attentive to all our needs. I would highly recommend them!!

Dr. Serrano himself is good, the ladies at the front desk tho are rude. Unresourceful, unhelpful, snarky, & unprofessional. A good dr with a bad front desk staff. Never going back to this drs office those ladies at the front desk are unacceptable. They yelled at me because I came in to ask if I could get a copy of a paper that I lost & was put on the spot in the middle of the drs office in front of everyone having the ladies tell me how irresponsible I am & embarrassing me in front of everyone

I was a patient of Dr. Serrano for many years. I found him to be extremely empathetic and caring. He took the time to listen to my concerns, and to explain clearly all procedures, test results and to answer questions. His office worked with me when I did not have insurance, so that I could afford health care. If I still lived in the Brevard area, I would happily continue to use him as my primary physician.

Will not honor negotiated rate with united healthcare provider. Requires full payment even though the insurance company tells me I only have to pay the provider his negotiated rate. Totally dishonest provider and is overcharging his patients. Avoid at all cost.
