Dr. Leslie E. Diaz's Ratings
Dr. Leslie Diaz is one of the top Infectious Disease specialist, not just in this area, but in the U.S.
She is an advocate for the patient, takes all the time necessary when she is with a patient, and superior in all treatment given. One does not go into Infectious Disease to become rich, as some other reviews have suggested. It is one of the most intense specialty areas and when you call for an Infectious Disease doctor, you are in desperate need and very ill. Insurance companies do not pay on time and I know for a fact that Leslie Diaz goes out of her way to help many who do not have the money or insurance. Should a physician be compensated....absolutely. Should a physician be able to make a substantial living after years of schooling and training....absolutely. So for those who thing that Leslie Diaz lives in a 20 room mansion...think again. And if she did...it would be well deserved. So... the next time you or a loved one are gravely ill and you need to see an Infectious Disease doctor.... Dr. Leslie Diaz should be the first on your list. She is and always will be the best in my book.
I am not sure why other reviewers are giving poor ratings because a Dr. wants to make sure you have insurance. Medical care is not a free service people!!! Go to the public clinic. I used to work in a Dr's office, and Dr's have a business to run. It is not fair to give a poor rating because they are running a business. Would you expect a car insurance company to pay for your car damage if you didn't have insurance? Having said that I love this Dr's office! Staff was very professional and Dr. Diaz is the best. She took the time to explain everything to me, and I could tell that she really cared. I cold not be happier with her. She has a great bedside manner, and is very knowledgeable.
This doctor does not do workers comp cases. And will do what every it takes to keep your case on private insurance. Costing you money, while making herself more money. I would not let this doctor change a bandaid for me. My best advice to you is find a new doctor. This one only cares about money. When my insurance ran out she would not see me anymore. She also put me in the hospital to keep me from filing workers comp. And when the insurance would not pay for it, because she could not give valid medical reasons for putting me in the hospital. She told me "We can not treat patients based on the way insurance company do business. We have to do what's best for the patient." So I guess it was best for this patient to get no care, since I had no insurance anymore.
The staff called me a few minutes before noon(they stop answering the phones at noon) and told me I need a refferal from my primary physician on a appointment for tommorow which was made 17 days ago. The doctor knows what she is doing but the office is not well run.
