    Horrible experience - the doctor was dismissive of my skin conditions when ask to scan for skin discolorations on my back he literally took 5 seconds to look at it and seemed annoyed that I waste his time

    Dr Ricardo-Gonzalez was thorough and gave me confidence in his exam and minor treatments. He also made me feel he saw me as a person not just a patient when asking me about family holiday plans etc. Was a nice experience.

    Provider just follow what his nurse told him and no time for the appointment. No more than 10 minutes for the visit.

    I've never seen a doctor with so little apparent interest in me. Didn't bother to explain anything ignored my rash didn't react to my mild expressions of pain during treatment didn't greet me or say goodbye. I didn't feel okay asking questions.
