Ratings for Alarcon Rene A MD
Interested only in quick in,quick out office visits. specialist. I had seen him for review of labs,then needed a release signed for cataract surgery within a week and he wouldn't sign the release without seeing me again...4 days later.Even when I told them the form said within 30 days of surgery. .Then gave me a lecture that there's no such thing as medical clearance...it's medical evaluation,but then he didn't touch me ..nothing to evaluate my being healthy for surgery.He won't do anything without seeing you.I think this office keeps afloat with simple office visits , and lab money. I wanted an ortho referral for severe femoralpatello DJD and,he argued with me,pulled up his pants leg to show me his Walgreen brace, said " those injections don't work" take Aleve or ibuprofen.I told him I couldn't because of my cardiac history..he argued with me told me the only thing I couldn't take was Celebrex ,even tho my cardiologist told me not to take either.I got my referral,and subsequent injections,because I challenged him,with my reports and the necessity of getting advise from a specialist. Only stayed with him these few months,but I am going to change ,and would NOT recommend him to anyone.
