Ratings for Dr. Alex DeJesus
I first called Dr De Jesus's practice in August, 2017. It was a horrible experience from the very first time I contacted them. Dr De Jesus is a good doctor and is not the issue. It's the way his practice is managed. His staff is uncaring and unfriendly, and they definitely take NO responsibility for their mistakes. No apologies at all. The only person who was the least bit human was a Medical Assistant named Michael Jackson. He cares about patients and their issues. I am still owed money by this practice, and I've called repeatedly with no results. They won't return phone calls, and the Office Manager is useless. I would NOT recommend this practice to anyone, unless you want nothing but hassles.
ok, first. his office staff and i'm guessing his nursing assistants are the most horrible staff you will ever come across, zero compassion and 100% RUDE! totally awful attitude once you walk in, as if you're creating more problems in their for them walking in the dr's. office. this dr. is supposed to be educated on arthritic conditions which include gout, good luck. it was as if i had to inform the symptoms of gout, and then when you do this he's ready to end the appointment soon or hurry to get you out of there. once again, before leaving you've got to check out with the front staff and see how horrbile his staff carries themselves. they tell you to at least give 24 hours notice of cancellation, i gave 72 hours and was sent a letter to me 3 days later stating i was no longer a patient of his. honestly, if you want to beleive the positive feedback here go right ahead. but if you want to visist an office that is horrible all around and waste your time and money, this one is it.
Dr. De Jesus is a kind and compassionate doctor. If you have an autoimmune disease, he really knows his stuff. Michelle and the office staff were also very nice and helpful. Since I can't afford insurance, Michelle and Dr. De Jesus helped me out with people and phone numbers of who to call so I could save money on tests and other stuff. I read the few negative comments from a couple of people about pain medicine, but those are always from disgruntled drug addicts who are doctor shopping. They are mad because he won't give them more drugs. And the comment about "my mama speaks Spanish" problem is a joke, because Dr. De Jesus native language is Spanish. He's from Puerto Rico after all. Give him a chance. As a long time pain sufferer, I can tell you it's easy to be irritable, when you're feeling bad. He always listens to what I have to say, and then gives me a logical, intelligent game plan for what we're going to do about it. I'm happy to know him. I did wait a little, but he's worth it.
i have seen several rheumatologists over the years and i was expecting a slow nontalkative doctor, i found a great surprise ina well educated dynamic doctor who underestands my problem and in a very short time got me back on track, i greatly apreciate his care.
Dr. de Jesus is fabulous, but his staff is sometimes horrible! The nurse who usually takes your weight, blood pressure, temp, etc. is just awful. She is rude, and acts like you are the scum of the earth! I've been seeing him for about 14 years now, and his staff has almost made me ready to leave his practice.
Dr. De Jesus is very compassionate. Althought the office runs behind I agree it's due to patient care. My first appt. was spent mostly talking --he listened attentively and had a plan. If you suffer with auto immune disease one of the first things you learn is the trial and error of drug therapies. I have found his stakff to be helpful and kind--I'm curious now to check out Michelle but I've never had problems. My wait time is long and I plan accordingly. RA is a tiring disease and most of us are short tempered by pain. Maybe there is a reverse approach we canReview the questions you have for the doctor. take - bring a book relex......
