Albuquerque, NM |
I had a very positive experience with Ms. Pena, she cleared everything up in 2 visits, well I guess it was 1 visit in which she gave the treatment and prescribed the medicine and 1 visit just to make sure it was all cleared up (which it was). I thought the listened to me and I felt comfortable asking questions. I would go back to her (of course, I hope I don't need to go back).

She was dismissive and uncaring. She spent maybe 8 minutes with me and there were no other patients waiting. Without giving me much of an exam she immediately farmed me out to others. My friend told me about NMSI and said how well she was treated for the same thing, I guess you have to be a medical professional to be treated with respect and courtesy. I will be going somewhere else, somewhere that treats the patients with care.

Olivia is a wonderful Provider! You can tell how much she cares about helping people. Whenever I've had a problem she is quick to try to help me find a solution so I can feel better quickly. I'd recommend Olivia to any of my family or friends.
