Ratings for Dr. Richard Gomendoza
Arrogant and doesn't listen. Only goes off lab results. When I told him about the debilitating side effects of the medication he prescribed, he refused to change the medication because he said my lab results were fine. Office staff is incompetent. I called to schedule a follow up appointment and still hadn't received a return call after 3 days so I called again. Still had to wait 3 more days for a return call. Staff couldn't find my lab results that had been faxed over from a different doctor. I brought them my copy and their copy mystically appeared. I won't go back to a doctor who won't listen to me.
I have been a patient of his since my other endo retired. He is knowledgable and listens when I talk. He does want to go by the books advice but will listen if you are an individual case as I am. I believe a person must stand up for themselves and he will allow that. though we disagree about the amount of medicine, he usually listens when you can give reasons why.
My first visit Dr. Gomendoza, he was very polite answered all my questions, and was very supportive. He said he had seen cases like mine many times, he knew what was wrong with me. He ordered a comprehensive amount of lab work to verify his diagnosis. Then when the lab work did not support his original diagnosis on my second visit he refused to go over the lab results with me. He would not answer any of my questions and finally looked at me and I quote said, "I don't know what is wrong with you and I can't help you." I found this extremely unprofessional for a doctor to refuse to work with a patient farther because the doctor's first diagnosis was wrong. I do not recommend Dr. Gomendoza to anyone. I will not go back.
Dr. Gomendoza was very thorough with my examination and testing. He explained what the test were for and advised me of the results. My previous endo dr was not as thorough and missed something. I really appreciate the time Dr. Gomendoza took with me!
