Dr. Nazareno has given me excellent medical care and answered all of my questions. Through her guidance, I have reduced my cholesterol, my A1C, and my weight. I appreciate her gently pushing me not to be satisfied yet and to continue to become healthier.

I like Dr Nazareno a lot. I worked as an insurance adjuster in large cities and can get along with almost everyone. Don't be put off by her direct manner of speaking. She's an outstanding doctor. Very knowledgeable> She can provide many positive suggestions to help maintain excellent health outcomes.

My experience was pleasant. Communication after a visit to discuss results is not a easy process. No one on staff calls. No one return calls. That part of the experience is not pleasant.

I am very grateful to Dr. Nazareno for the care she has given me. She would not stop until she found a way to treat my illness. I am so glad she isn't like other doctors, 15 minutes in a room then out. I would recommend her to anyone

BOTTOMLINE UPFRONT: Do not use this doctor. She’s rude and has no bedside manner. After our other provider moved, we were switched to Dr Nazareno...I regretted it almost instantly. She was very cold and rude. She interrupted me when we were talking about my condition. She would say that she couldn’t understand us. She doesn’t listen and was very rushed. She pushed more pills when we wanted to reduce amount. My diabetic shoe consult has to be redone due to her not signing it for 6 months!

I saw Dr. Nazareno for the first time on February 6, 2019. She appeared to be attentive, and informative. She told me she is the "Mean One". I guess she'll show me eventually. The staff was professional and helpful. I arrived an hour before my scheduled appt (new patients are asked to come 30 mins early). I went to an exam room an hour later, (note to self: always come early), and waited approx. 45 mins for the doctor. My only complaint is the waiting; but, I know I'm not her only patient.

She was impatient, short-tempered, rude, and did not listen. She seemed to think that she knew answers to my questions before I asked them. When I asked about a problem that had recently affected a brother and a sister, she said she didn't have time to discuss it. She refused to refill a prescription for a controlled, but legal, substance, because she said that doctors who came under scrutiny for prescribing controlled drugs tended to be primary care physicians.

Dr. Nazareno saw me for the 1st time December 4th, 2017. She was kind and attentive. She was thorough and seemed genuinely eager to help me. I'm very pleased with the care I received.

I have had several visits and the only bad issue, and it is a minor one, was the wait. I noticed that Dr Nazareno did not seem to look at my file but was knowledgeable of the contents contained in it about me without having to look. Her knowledge of the medications seemed to be abundant but again I'm not a Dr.

I absolutely love Dr Nazareno. She listens to all of your concerns and gives you information about them. The wait time is never very long. Most of the staff are friendly and courteous.

Horrible experience. Rude, unprofessional comments. No compassion. Didn't look at chart to see any of my history. Just negative attitude and seemed aggravated I was there. Hate I saw her in my regular drs absence. Won't happen again. If you are a dr you should care for all of the patients you see. I miss my dr. He's not judgmental. He cares. This woman is judgmental and uncaring. I left in tears.

This has to be one of the worst doctors I've ever had to deal with. She is very rude and doesn't care enough about the patients to even read the charts and get familiar with their history or at least the latest history before entering the room. She has a very smart mouth and talks down to people as if they are stupid and lack understanding. She cuts you off when u r speaking. She doesn't care to listen at all.I am currently in the process of finding another primary care physician.

My doctor wasn't available so I was scheduled to see Dr. Nazareno instead. She's very direct which is fine but it crosses the line into being rude and abrupt. You get the feeling everyone is hearing your session because she is extremely loud. Bedside manner non-existent. May be a good doctor but not for me because it hard to get past the previous items mentioned above.

Dr. Nazareno saw me when Dr Saliba was out sick. I was thrilled with Dr. Nazareno. Not knowing me, she took the time to read up on my chart and spent good time with me. I would recommend her for anyone looking for a new doctor at this practice.
