What People Say About Dr. Sheila Albuquerque, MD

Dr. Albuquerque has greatly aided my return to a better level of health, so I am thankful I gave her a try and then stuck with her, though I was a bit put off after our first visit. She is rather abrupt, though not impolite. She does not mince words and is very confident and that can be a bit off-putting when you're not accustomed to it. She is very professional but friendly and I find that she listens well to my questions and concerns. The staff is friendly and knowledgeable.

She was not receptive to my questions regarding my husbands Lupus and the likelihood our children may or may not have the disposition. She cut me off when I asked rather educated questions as if I was attacking her integrity. I will not be coming back to her.

Dr A wanted to classify me as having Lupus & wanted to put me on meds to lower my immune system. I refused. I had been put through 6 years of testing and in the end learned I had never been given the lyme test. Dr A didn't want to give it to me but did after I demanded the test. Both tests came back positive & I was called by her nurse to inform me of the results and was told they wouldn't treat me any longer and good luck. This Dr failed me tremendously.

This doctor was the most thorough doctor I've ever been to. I asked questions and she answered them. Great bed side manner.
