August 16, 2021
I had the unfortunate experience of calling to see if I could get a phone appointment since I had a dry throat that morning and I was told that I needed to come in to get the Rx I was requesting (even though it is for cold sore prevention and there is nothing to evaluate physically.) I came in and reported the dry throat in the cold symptom check and was then told I needed to switch my visit to a video visit. I was more than happy to switch, it just would have been nice to not waste 30 minutes driving to and from an appointment that always should have been video. Otherwise, the front office staff and the doctor were wonderful and I was happy with my care.
August 16, 2021
Extremely professional and very minimal waiting time. Staff is always fantastic!
August 11, 2021
very satisfied
August 11, 2021
Dr. Abueg was friendly and very professional.
August 09, 2021
So when I made my appointment, I told my symptoms, which were apparently COVID symptoms and they knew that when I scheduled my appointment, but they gave me an office appointment. When I rushed out of work to attend this appointment, the clerk tells me that I had to do full appointment. That was very inconvenient as I had to schedule time off which I didn't have to because if they would've originally told me, I would've been fine with doing a phone call but because I scheduled time off work, I lost money. So next time, please, when we patients make appointments, they need to listen to our symptoms to decide whether we need to make a phone call apartment or in person appointment. Please. This is very important to us as we have to take time off work. It was very inconvenient for me to rush out of work to just take a phone call appointment.
August 09, 2021
I felt so at ease with Dr. Abueg. She listened and explained everything to me. She was very caring. So was her nurse. ??????????????
