Olivia is a TERRIBLE provider! You want someone rude and who makes you feel worthless, she's your girl! You are a number to her, your pain doesn't matter, it doesn't matter if you get all of the required testing such as CT's x-rays etc. Whether or not she'll treat you depends on whether she likes you or not. Don't dare express your opinion or one that doesn't agree with hers or she'll dismiss you as a patient without even treating you. Sinus sufferers beware!

I’ve had outstanding care from Ms. Peña and I wanted to leave feedback given a few people were harsh and I’d say, quite unfair. Olivia is intelligent, efficient and a complete professional. She identified a longstanding problem with my sinuses and she was honest with me. I can appreciate her articulate and compassionate demeanor & I highly recommend her. It’s true what they say that you can never please everyone, because this young lady adores her work and she dedicates the time to her patients!

I've seen this doctor 5 times. I was very disappointed. I feel like this woman hates what she does for a living. She told me, last time I saw her, "I don't know why your sinuses are not getting better after surgery!" I felt like telling her, "and this is why you are the doctor...to find out! The only thing she did for me, was to spray numbing spray in my nose and tell me what she saw. I could do the same thing with nasal spray and a flashlight.

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.
