Dr. Listens and Doesn't Rush
I'm liking Dr. Alfonso so far. I've seen her twice and both times she has sat down, listened carefully and hasn't rushed. She is warm and gives you the time to ask questions. The office staff is friendly and helpful. They are bilingual and very approachable. The downside for some people is that she only comes into the office once a month and only speaks Spanish. In general, I would recommend Dr. Alfonso.

Dr. is super knowledgeable, the wait can be a bit long some days but well worth the wait. Every other dr I’ve been to treats their patients like a factory. Loved the dr, I would definitely recommend.

Once you actually get to see the Dr., she's a delight, a very nice person and a good doctor. However, to try to talk to her, to have her return a call, and the answering service that is used for Dr. Alfonso, it is very possibly the worst I have ever had to deal with in my 50 years. It once took me 1 month to finally communicate with her about tests results. Her call backs are at a very odd times of the day. The answering service hangs up the phone on you. A total disaster.
