"I'm a CPAP patient, and had several appointments with this MD to get prescriptions for sleep study, machine, supplies, etc. Now I've changed insurance" plans and the new plan requires a copy of the prescription. Even though the MD agrees that there's no way my condition would have changed by this time, he refuses to send the prescription to the new insurance company unless I come in for an appointment. Since he acknowledges that there is no medical reason for this, his only reason is to bill me and my insurance company for an unnecessary appointment. This is not just a waste of my time and money but unethical. Go to somebody else if you need a CPAP.

"Wonderful experience. He pays close attention and I feel open to discuss anything with him. He even gives me good references for other doctors. I would highly recommend him to others.

Exam seemed to be going ok and then he did something that took me totally by surprise. I had not discussed or given consent for procedure he did. Very upsetting. I will never ever see him again because I have a total lack of trust in him. I feel he showed a lack of respect l to me and caused me unnecessary stress.

I called the doctor's office on a Monday at 4:45pm, and got the message that the office is open 9am - 5pm and to leave a message. I guess the office staff went home early that day. So I left a message. Nobody called the next day, so on Tuesday, I called about 4pm. Got the same voice message. So I left another message, but nobody called me back. On Wednesday, I called around 9:15am. The phone was answered by a woman who couldn't have sounded more annoyed to be there, and just said "Doctor's office, please hold." She put me on hold, and left me there for 6 minutes. I hung up. I called back around 10:30am. A different,

woman answered the phone, and said she'd fetch the doctor's nurse for me. I waited on hold for 5 minutes or so, then the grumpy woman from my earlier call came back on the line to schedule me for an appointment -- the first availability is 5 weeks away. Obviously, I haven't seen the doctor (not sure I will if I can find someone else to visit sooner), so I have nothing to report in terms of his abilities. But his office staff leaves MUCH to be desired.

Overcharged and misdiagnosed twice! - In late 2013 I had a chronic, choking cough. I was referred to ABQ health partners pulmonary clinic. The nurse practitioner - VAn
Santa Barbara Pulmonologists Provider Name Locked
- reasked all the questions that I had answered on the questionaire about my condition, gave me a bunch of scripts for allergies and told me to try them all and see if anything worked, had an "educator" teach me how to use an inhaler (I've used inhalers longer than she's been alive). None of this helped. Then I was referred to an ABQ Health part. ENT Doc, he said I was going through "the change" and needed Premarin! Really! After months of doing everything (except premarin) I went to a non-ABQ health partner urgent care, and was diagosed with walking pneumonia and treated successfully with 6 weeks of antibiotics. I spent over $500.00 in medical charges and prescriptions, and more in lost work and time over nearly a year. I will NEVER go back to any branch of this practice and hope you don't either - for the sake of your financial AND physical health

Very easy appointment. Check in was a breeze. Staff was VERY friendly. Dr.

was exceptionally personable, attentive, and takes your wishes into account when planning treatment/diagnostics. The entire experience was a breeze and makes going to the doctor a pleasure rather than a chore.

Staff is rude, and if you call and ask questions they hang up on you. They transfer you from one person to the other, and you can never get the answers you need.

We have been waiting over 4 days to get an order straightened out, and it still has yet to happen.

It has just been a very unprofessional and very frustrating experience every time we deal with this clinic.

She is a top quality physician. She is thorough and provides complete service. The office is clean and has very good nursing assistants. They also have the facilities in the office to run most tests and lab work.

I have been seeing the doctor for about 1 year and my husband has been seeing him for about 3 years. He is very knowledgeable and caring. My husband visited for sleep apnea and the doctor has helped significantly with that. The doctor heard something in my husband’s chest and was able to save his life. He is a very well respected doctor in the area and is a superb doctor. I feel very lucky to have him as a doctor. The few nurses I have seen are very nice and scheduling is easy. I do not have to wait long to be seen.

I've been using him for 3 1/2 years. He's talks to you, but is in and out pretty quickly. The office staff is pretty good. When making an appointment, sometimes it can be far off into the future.
