  • Emilia
    First of all, the licensed sales agent. Seem like not eager to attend the time I went to his office. He seem disappointed because I decline extra help on a 3th party Medicare advantage even if I explained my situation from that before. He showed too much his disappointment. 2nd. Dr. SIM doubt of all my ailments medications I'm taking . no it's not epilepsy, I told him about my accident? Doubtful for having seizures, doubt in my meds for diabetes, that I'm diabetic, my problems on my constipation. I made a note of my depression the n/p didn't mentioned to him or he didn't care (doctor). He probably would doubt it too! I told him I'm looking around for a new primary doctor. Because of my disappointment over that place! Some nurse was pretty rude almost escorting me out sarcastically! The way she said oh don't show no appt. She said it too firm, you don't have to come here anymore, she sounded too stern! The employees noticed it but like approving with her. I felt like a dog with its tail between his legs with its face stooped down. The driver was very friendly with me 1st. Then he changed the moment it was time to go home, he was in the building chatting so he heard the news that I was shopping around for a new Dr.! And it all started with Sergio Gutierrez upsetness about me not accepting another advantage care and I already called medicare about this problem!! That's 8 have to say about those phonies at 1st extremely exaggerating friendly then they changed my goodness. They all showed they're true colors after the couldn't get thier way. I knew there was a catch. Mr. Sergio Gutierrez was a big pressure guy than he pout.thanks bit no thanks plus!! I felt kicked out even though I was planning to not return because of thier attitudes! I'm very displeased even with the Dr., Nurse and rude N/P. Too. Never I step foot there plus I'm extremely shock I didn't expected this evil. Hypocrisy. Good bye.
