Dr Javier is a new physician to me. This recent visit was my 2nd visit with him. I do like his approach and we seem to be developing a good dialog. I have asked him questions on the portal and his responses have been timely. I look forward to getting much healthier under his guidance.

I made numerous calls to this office between 12/24 and 12/27 without ever getting a call back. Came in without an appt. because I could not get my calls returned. My primary doctor in that office is Dr X who was out of town that week. I was very unhappy that none of my calls were returned by whomever was on call. This makes me think I should switch to a different more responsive medical group. I like Dr X and Dr. Javier but leaving numerous messages with the service and getting not a single call back was very concerning. Also I was told by Dr. Javier that he would call me back on the afternoon of the 26th about a follow up with an ortho doc and he did not do so, despite my further attempts to call.

I am aware that a doctor's visit is not always a pleasant visit but Dr D Javier's bedside manners makes it less of a worry with his non judgmental attitude and professionalism. I was sad when my last PCP quit but I found a "friend" if I may say so. Keep up with the good work Doc.

Dr. Javier is absolutely amazing! However, while leaving his office, some woman from behind the reception desk was quite rude. she did not introduce herself, handed me a bill, and quite loudly without respecting my privacy demanded to know when I would be paying, and wanted to know why I would not pay at this visit. she was very rude and that experience was terrible. if Dr. Javier were not so wonderful as a physician I would never return to this office.
