September 09, 2022
Felt very comfortable talking to Dr Almazan
September 07, 2022
Dr. Almazan was very cordial. He was very caring, felt very comfortable with him and I have anxiety disorder. So, he made me feel very comfortable and he knew what had to be done and he did a referral for me. I would recommend them again, to all my friends and family.
September 07, 2022
I felt my appointment was rushed. I needed things explained more clearly and less disjointed. I trusted my doctor but things were all a bit rushed.
September 07, 2022
I am extremely pleased with the care I received from Dr. Timothy Almazan. He proved to be a high quality professional, honestly caring, and a polite Gentleman. I seriously trust him and look forward to Dr. Almazan's medical care in the future. (PHI removed)

Doctor was awesome! His m.a. also.
September 01, 2022
I did not listen to The Numbers carefully on the beginning of the questionnaire and everything is a four. I was very happy with with the staff. The way they treated me, the only problem I had was when I had a make an appointment in the beginning, never met them, never saw them. It did take 3 months. Other than that I highly would recommend them. They made it a very easy experience, thank you.
August 31, 2022
The doctor was professional and yet very welcoming. He listened to my concerns and even made suggestions. Excellent visit!
August 29, 2022
Found the dr had a great bedside manor Very positive & clear His staff was very good also My only complaint was it took 2 & a half months to get an appointment Very much worth the wait !
August 25, 2022
Overall as good an experience as a minor surgery could be.
August 24, 2022

August 23, 2022
Enough with the damn masks. I have COPD. I shouldn't even be wearing a mask. The masks have been proven to not be effective with this man made virus. If you want to force your staff to wear them, so be it. Leave the patients alone. To make someone who is having a hard time breathing put this face diaper on is not FOLLOWING THE SCIENCE. Nor is it healthy.
August 22, 2022
All staff was very professional and office was very clean and organized. Thank you.
August 19, 2022
A very positive experience! Thank you so much...I was very pleased with Dr. Timothy Almazan and his staff. It was surprising, however, that it took several months to get my first appointment (as a new patient). There must be reasons for this long wait, but to the outsider, it's ... mystifying. And makes one wonder, 'Why so long?' What if a mole was in the very process of metastasizing? Days and/or months could make a difference, it seems to me. OK. Enough. I'm happy I was directed to this office and thank you, again, for all your help!!
August 18, 2022
Everybody was great. Staff was great. My only issue is that it takes forever to get an appointment. You know, if I have an issue, I can't be seen for 2 months out. I'm lucky, maybe a month and a half. That's that's just not feasible. And if there's some kind of issue going on, a growth, or a rash, or something that needs to be seen. I mean, we're waiting that long. It's just impractical at best, and maybe even dangerous, at worse. Something's got to be done about that.
August 17, 2022
my doctor was very kind, he treated me was very, with respect and I appreciated that and I told him so
August 17, 2022

July 27, 2022
My experience with the doctor was very good. I really appreciate it. This survey however is not cool and I don't like it and it didn't make me feel great and it's Sunday and I'm not really excited about this survey, but the doctor was great and the office was great. Thanks.
July 25, 2022

He is very attentive and instilled confidence.
June 16, 2022
The Dr was so extremely caring & kind!
June 15, 2022
My appointment was set at 4 months after I called PIH to schedule. It is incomprehensible that patiens need to be able to predict their healthcare needs months in advance. The doctor ws great but your support system needs repair.
June 13, 2022
Dr Almazan is so truly caring and extremely respectful. I really feel that he there for me and my health. His staff is very respectful and friendly too
June 13, 2022
Dr Almazan was great ..

June 08, 2022
Wonderful bedside manner made me feel very confident in his care and ability.
June 03, 2022
He was excellent. Explained everything and more.
May 27, 2022
The physician is arrogant and not very diplomatic. Did not give patient a chance to address her concern before being cut off. No patient should be treated like an ignorant child
May 27, 2022
They had a cancellation earlier in the day and called me and asked me if I would like to take it. It was very helpful for me
May 26, 2022
This was my first visit with Dr. Almazan and his bedside manner was outstanding. His knowledge and ability to address my specific issues was "five star." This doctor truly cares about his patients and is simply a kind human being.
May 25, 2022
The nurse forgot to give me ointment to use after removing the packing in wound. I would have liked a print out of instructions on wound care rather than handwritten one from doctor--which was hard to read.
May 25, 2022
The only negative about going to this facility was the very long time to get an appointment.
May 25, 2022
Very happy with Office
May 23, 2022
I was able to get into an appointment with my provider in less than a week, with a follow up appointment for an operation, Three days later, as well. And the operation lasted 40 minutes, and I felt like I was I heard throughout the whole process. It was just amazing care, and I really appreciate not just the doctor, but everybody that was helpful on the way. Thank you.
May 23, 2022
I just wanted to give a comment about Dr. Almazan, He did excellent service to my son (PHI removed). He was very personable. His staff was very kind and friendly, and we do appreciate the input, and the time that he spent with us as well as a question I had, and he answered my question the next day from the voice message I left. Thank you so much.
May 19, 2022
Dr. Almazan was very friendly, caring, and listened carefully to my concerns. He was informative and supportive. I highly recommend him!
May 18, 2022
I was pretty satisfied with everything. The only thing I was a little dissatisfied with is. I talked to the girl about what pharmacy I was using and she sent it to my old pharmacy. Anyway, so I had to drive about 20 miles out of the way to get the prescription. Other than that, though. The doctor was fantastic.
May 13, 2022
I really liked Dr. Almazan. He was very professional, he answered my questions, and alleviated my fear.
May 13, 2022
Hi, he was very professional and explained everything thoroughly and recommended me to a plastic surgeon. I would definitely go back to him again. I was very pleased with him.
May 12, 2022
Dr Tim has a warm welcome and was very knowledgeable in answering my questions ! Very good appointment for me !
May 09, 2022
The doctor was very pleasant and explained things clearly and listened when I talked to him. A great experience.
May 09, 2022
The provider postponed the appointment till today, and then did not show up.
May 06, 2022
I had a very good experience. But I myself forgot to ask a couple of questions. It took over 2... 2 1/2 months to see him. So when I finally got to see him, I didn't remember to ask all the questions that concerned me. That's the only thing. But he was very, very friendly to me. Very nice. It's... I just wished I would have had a little bit more time to... I wish I would've remembered. I'm sorry. I wish I would've remembered to ask him some other questions concerning my hair loss. Thank you.
May 05, 2022
He was very kind and understanding.
May 05, 2022
All I can say is we need more people like him. He listen to everything I had to say and now we will work together to find out how my rosacea goes.
May 02, 2022
Staff and Dr were very personable mans professional

April 29, 2022
I would like for them to take the vital signs, which they were never taken. And I was very nervous. And that's... that's the only thing that I wanted to be different. Everything else was fine. Thank you.
April 28, 2022
Confusing thoughts after the visit.

April 20, 2022
the time to see the specialist takes a long time between the primary doctor and the specialist
April 20, 2022
Dr. Almazan was great!
April 18, 2022
Hi, I was sent there by one of your urgency to have a couple of boils removed on my chest. They sent me over... to La Mirada and, you know, he said he couldn't do it. I had to go... go down at Washington... this next week. So, this needs to be corrected. I said when you referred this needs to be fixed or one of the other one says they can do it. And we're going, that's fine. Whatever (INAUDIBLE) have a good day.
April 18, 2022
I felt really comfortable with this doctor, very personable. Also, I did not need to schedule appointment at this time.
April 18, 2022
Dr. Almazan was wonderful! He made my son feel at ease and truly showed concern for him. We were very happy with our visit.

March 28, 2022
The doctor was very friendly, very personable and easy to talk to.
March 28, 2022
I was supposed to see a different doctor two days later, and for some reason they canceled that and rescheduled me with this doctor, Dr. Timothy-whatever. Anyway, I was very, very happy with him - even though he's young, he was very forward with explaining what the different things that I had in question, and he did a thorough job and got in to see me very quickly. To be honest, I would have liked to just talk to him a little bit more but he seemed like he might be busy - and like I say, I'm not sure he was - but what I was going to talk about was not necessarily on just skin care and things like that. But yeah, he was very very thorough and very good, very efficient. Thank you.
March 25, 2022
The staff & Dr. Almazan we're very professional & kind. Dr. Almazan is very knowledgeable & listened to my concerns. I started his treatment recommendations as soon as the medications were ready for pick up and I'm already seeing results.
March 25, 2022
Dr. Almazan treated us very well and this is going to be what I have and I don't have any needs, so I give him a 10 or what, he doesn't tell me that now.
March 21, 2022
This Doctor was very knowledgeable and polite. I would say it was say it was the best doctor visit I have ever had.
