Currently sitting in this Drs office for an 845 appointment and it is now 10:11. I've been "next" for an hour. The office staff is extremely rude. My son has a follow up for a broken collarbone and while I could understand this if we had been a walkin, this is unacceptable when you have a scheduled appointment. DO NOT VISIT if you are expecting timely service or to be treated respectfully when you ask questions.

Dr Pechero has the MOST RUDE AND OBNOXIOUS, NON-ENGLISH SPEAKING MORONS in the Rio Grande Valley area. I would not recommend my Worst Enemy to Dr Pechero and his ignorant staff. I took my disabled wife due to back pain and the took xrays and an MRI and all they could tell me was that due to the curvature in her spine, that she would experience BACK PAIN. Well Duh!!! That was the reason for the visit!! It was because she was experiencing pain.

The offie is always filthy and crowded. There are always long waiting time, usually 2 to 3 hours. The staff is incompetent and rude. It takes for ever to get anything processed. The doctor hardly has time to discuss anything with the patient. You may spend one minute with the doctor, if you are lucky.
