28/10/13 1 3 2 1 Dr. Monano-Loza does not live up to ones expectations of a specialist. In 2008 I was informed by my family Dr. that my liver enzymes were elevated. These enzymes continued to elevate to a critical level while under Dr. Loza's care. During one emergency visit I was asked when I was scheduled for a liver transplant by the head of critical care. Really, Dr. Loza never once informed me of the need for a possible transplant. In fact he was not cognoscente of the results of my quarterly blood work results which my family Dr. became alarmed about in February 2013 and contacted me personally. When confronted on his care practices, he seemed truly concerned and compassionate to my attempts to correct the damage done to my liver by prescribed medications. Since my last visit in the spring of 2013 Dr. Loza has gone out of his way to distance himself from me and my inquiries. I am sorry for this rating, but my life will not continue without a functioning liver. Filed without prejudice.  Respond

23/07/12 3 5 5 5 Aldo was phenomenal, and after I was told by another doctor I was dying - over the phone, yet he put me at ease and went to work to find out a reason. He thinks the origial diagnosis is wrong, and that's a relief. He's friendly, knowledgeable, and professional  Respond

08/02/12 5 4 5 5 Dr. Montano-Loza is patient, very current in new procedures and treatments with liver didease and transplants. A no nonsense doctor, he will still take the extra time to explain something until you understand completely. Will discuss your conditions and treatments with others on his team to deliver the best possible medical and life saving care  Respond

06/05/11 1 4 2 5 He said that he knew what is wrong with my stomach, but he wanted to do a Gastroscopy and a Colonoscopy to make sure, but then everything came back ok, but instead of doing more investigations to find out what else it could be, he just decided that I have "Irritable Bowel Syndrome" and then he put me on pills, but their NOT helping, so I won't be staying on them much longer. He's a VERY educated man and he did rule out somethings that it's NOT though, but I was really hoping that he knew what was really wrong with my stomach, but he didn't :(  Respond
