Patient Comments (3)
Santa Barbara, CA |
I waited over a month for my consultation. Dr. Aguirre was unfriendly, unhelpful, and seemed unwilling to even speak to me about my concerns. He did not physically examine me, and spent less than five minutes with me before stating that he couldn't offer any help without having a litany of tests done. I do not think he spoke more than 10 words to me. I was quickly handed off to someone to book an appointment without listening to my symptoms. I was not reassured and left feeling uncared for.

My experience with Dr. Aguirre could not have been better. He was very attentive to an urgent need and had a caring, concerning demeanor. His bedside manner was more than excellent. I would recommend Dr. Aguirre highly!
