Terrible human. This person should not be in practice at all.

Terrible experience. I went in for a surgical abortion. Staff was obnoxious, and I could hear them loudly discussing patients from the waiting room. When I saw Dr. Betancourt for the ultrasound, he didn't even say hello, just barked at me to move forward on the table, looked for a second and said "Too early, come back in two weeks." Before I could ask any questions, the nurse rushed me into the waiting room. Then, they came to get me to reschedule and took me to the front desk, where every question I had would be heard by everyone in the waiting room. The receptionist tried to schedule me for next week, but I told her the doctor said two weeks and she was insistent that one would be fine. I'm confused and should have spoken up but I was overwhelmed. Because I couldn't have the procedure, the clinic refunded all but $100 for now. I am considering forfeiting the $100 and making an appointment at Planned Parenthood, where I've heard that staff shows respect for patients.

I don't know this doctor, I was just looking for an OB Gyn for a PAP Test, but after reading your coments I only can said that you will never find a good person doing abortions. If a doctor is doing abortion for money, he/she cannot be a good person, even if he/she is nice or kind. There's always other options, please google the Crisis pregnancy Centers near to your town and learn more about what abortion really is on www.abortionno.org

Dr. Betancourt is the WORST I've ever encountered. He angerly told me to relax (which I was as relaxed as I could be) and threated he wouldn't do the procedure if I didn't relax. He never made eye contact with me or introduced himself. He was cold, harsh, and has ZERO bedside manners. During the procedure, he and the nurse talked to themselves the entire time as if I wasn't even in the room. I was a paying customer obtaining a legal procedure and should have been showed a little bit of respect. Doctors like him should no be allowed to practice medicine

Betancourt is callous, malicious, and should not be in practice. He does not acknowledge his patients and mistreats his staff. He lacks sensitvity and any sense of humanity. I would go as far as to say he is evil.

I had a procedure done by fernando betancourt, he did not speak 1word to me, one of his nurses checked my blood to see if I was rh-to determine whether I needed an extra shot before having an abortion, they told me it was negative, I literally had to argue with the staff b/c I knew I was rh-, after re-checking my blood (she had my blood all over her fingers and no gloves) they said "oh your right, its going to be another $50) having an abortion is a horrible decision to make, he doesn't even speak to the patients, at my checkup he said "your bladder isn't full like they said it should be" he was obviously very anger and walked out of the room. I'm young i was scared and actually had some complications but wasn't given the opportunity to talk about them. He is a very angry and cold person and obviously has done this procudure one too many times and by looking at him you just can tell that he's not a good person. Most of his staff is the same way. They first want you
