Never looked up from his clipboard, visited him twice. Seems to only care to pass out pills.

We have been going to Dr. Sanchez for many years. He does have a couple of areas he needs to work on. 1) he seems nervous and ready to get in and out as fast as he can. As another poster pointed out, he keeps his head down too much instead of engaging with the patient. 2) he pulls out the rx pad more readily than taking the time to figure out the root of the problem. I haven't found many mainstream doctors who want to do this. Instead, they are ready to prescribe a pill and get you out. If your problem goes away, fine, if not, then they will give you another 2-3 minutes of their time.

He has a long history of making erroneous assumptions when examining his patients, and calling it "medical expertise", either out of laziness or ignorance (I really couldn't tell you which.) Talk to people in Alpine, Ft. Davis, Marfa about this man and it won't take long before you hear a horror story. He doesn't order tests for people who are in real trouble, and sends them home to have their condition worsen to a dangerous point. He takes out appendix unnecessarily. He doles out pain meds to addicts who need REAL treatment/help. He almost killed someone who came in with a horrible, unbearable headache and told her to take tylenol 3, and she nearly died. He diagnoses elderly people who have mild confusion in certain aspects of their lives with "severe dementia" getting them committed to institutions when they should be home with their spouses or families. He loses people's medical records on a regular basis, then actually tries to blame them, no matter how ridiculous the logic.
