it would be nice for the registration area to display a little empathy and care. The registration individual seemed more intent on collecting payment for the balance due from my May 11th visit to my primary care Dr. I had not received a EOB statement or bill for my charges so I was unaware of them. The individual was more concerned about putting me on a payment plan than hearing me when I told her so was confused and didn't know what she was talking about. I was extremely flustered and my heart rate went up immediately. it made me even more nervous thinking about the surgery that I was there to schedule. Luckily Dr Garcia and her Asst were amazing. the demeanor and care they exercised certainly helped to calm my nerves.

Dr. Garcia is exceptional in the way she listened and included me in problem solving next steps. Even though I may not need surgery she never dismissed my medical concerns. I will recommend her to anyone in need of a surgeon.
