Bad experience. After waiting one hour I was told to stop complaining & was accused of something they did wrong. The Dr. was dismissive of things I was saying. I told them I needed referrals to specialists with my plan. He & his assistant INSISTED I did not. I insisted I DID. The next day she called to say the referrals were done. I was right. The doctor was more interested in correcting the spelling of his assistant's typing than seeing/examining me. There's not room to tell it all. Beware!

Horrible experience! Dr Chavez is my mom's long time physician. When her health and mental state started declining rapidly, I accompanied her to see what our next steps should be. Dr. Chavez was unprofessional, condescending and downright mean. When I inquired about her mental state and what the diagnosis was, he said it didn't matter. When I asked about her severe weight loss (110 lbs in a year), he said she's not dead yet, so it's not cancer. I am shocked and appalled.
