A Dr. that really listens, takes her time and answered my questions. Made sure I had sufficient amt. of refills. I felt she took enough time to get to know me and all of my concerns and medical illnesses.

I saw Dr. Cuevas for many years and she is the best. I moved and could no longer see her but I highly recommend her. She is very patient and listens to you.

I will not return. I had a 1:00 appt and was seen at 3:30. The second appt was scheduled at 4:00 and I was left in the room for 1 hour and 15 minutes. I left and I will never go back. I was made to sign an agreement to not miss an appt or I would be billed for missing. Can I bill her for keeping me waiting.
