What People Say About Dr. Silvia Diego, MD
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful

Dr. Diego is the best doctor I’ve ever had the pleasure of being a patient of. She’s very kind and works well with trying to find treatment(and specialists) as soon as possible considering I’m a difficult case considering my medical conditions. She was also willing to see me right away the next morning unscheduled when I had called her the night before with an emergency. Yes the wait can be ridiculous at times but with a doctor as great as her it’s 100 percent worth the wait!

The wait was over 2 hours to see the doctor. Each time I inquired about the status, I was told this exceedingly long wait was to be expected. It would take over 30 minutes waiting on line to talk to a receptionist just to schedule for an appointment.

I have ALWAYS waited at least one hour to see Dr. Diego. Last week I waited for almost 2 hours! There is never an apology and the follow through with referrals is terrible. Shame on me for letting this happen over and over. My New Year resolution is to find a new PCP!

I filed a complaint about the overall experience I received from the doctor and assistants here not being to the standard advertised on their website. Next thing I receive a letter dismissing me as a patient.

I recently became a patient of Dr. Diego after being referred to her by a close family friend. She really listens to me when I talk and explain my symptoms which isnt the case with all Drs i have visited. She actually took the time to explain things to me and go over what she has written in my chart which I really liked. I only wish the wait was a bit shorter but that is pretty comon at all doctors offices.

Dr. Diego is a very good doctor with a vast knowledge of medicine. Our whole family sees her. She seems to work 24/7 because she has called me back at night or on weekends when I've had an issue. Bottom line leave a message with her service or office and you will hear back. Keep in mind she is an OB GYN so sometimes waiting times and appointment are at the mercy of babies being born.
