Dr. Machado was good but at the end he just got up and walked out without saying bye or to wait for the referral. I had to ask a nurse for it. I thought that was rather strange. I thought he might return, was not sure what to do until the nurse came in.

The doctor did not shake my hand to greet me or even say goodbye when he was done with the consultation. Rather, he just left the room and left me sitting there assuming that he would return and never did. This was not the most effective doctor's visit that I have ever had.

the Dr was very unprofessional. He didn't great me as he walked in room. He barely made eye contact with me as he was talking to me. when barely asked me any questions bout my health. when I told him That I was here for a follow up to blood work he didn't give me a straight answer on weather my thyroid levels was in spec or not. and when I told him I have a cold and it's the reason why I was coughing he quickly gave me a prescription for antibiotics without any questions. when I asked for recommendations for a allergist he didn't answer me and just wrote me another prescription. worst experience yet from any Docter I seen. than when he was done he left without saying anything to me

The receptionist is always the best part about this place. The experience with the Dr. could be better. He seems like he has to rush around and try to fit as many people in as possible. I went in for chronic insomnia and a headache. I was given pills for my muscles...? Not sure why. Called to clear up the problem, didnt hear back from the office that night and had to call back on my own to get the correct medication.
