Ratings for Dr. John A. Flores
I saw Dr. Flores around 2 1/2 years ago for chronic pain. After waiting 1 to 3 hours to get in, with rude unprofessional staff at the front desk and only the lab and 1 person in his staff that seemed to care, Dr. Flores's attention span seemed to grow worse with each visit. Lost or no prior auths. forthcoming, missing faxes, sometimes weeks before an important RX would be filled. It's the worst staff I've ever tried to work with, and finally I told him after a 3 hour wait, I was having increased pain since becoming his patient . Long waits were killer for me, his staff being rude and ignoring me.. I quit, furthermore he was the most impaired I'd ever seen him that day. I wrote a letter to the office manager of Silver Health Care shortly after documenting my overall experience. Never heard a word. I seek my healthcare elsewhere in Silver and Cruces. I'm seen in or before in Cruces (including the drive) than I was languishing away in the waiting room at SHC. I'm not a patient that neither wants or does well on pain meds, but my feelings about Dr Flores remains. Something was very wrong with his care and worse, very little professional support in his staff or front desk.
I was very surprised and saddened to learn that Dr. Flores lost his license. I was sent to him for chronic pain, but I knew from the start I did NOT want any pharmaceuticals, and he seemed to respect that and prescribed movement exercises and a few dietary changes to help with inflammation - one of the first medical doctors I ever found (other than Naturopaths and Ayurvedic practitioners) who seemed aware of alternatives - so I told everyone how much I appreciated him. If he gave out prescriptions for lots of pain killers, I assume that's what his patients demanded. I wonder how much fault might be the clinic, which sent all their painkiller-needing patients to the same doc. I just can't believe that this intelligent, caring, listening doctor would be pushing painkillers - I've been around that sort of doctor took, but Dr. Flores is not one of those. I hope he wins whatever fight I imagine he must be in. The entire medical and pharmaceutical industry - and insurance industry - should be on trial, not this one doctor. This is a shame and a loss.
Wow! for those ignorant comments. Dr. Flores can't loose faxes the clinic HE WORKS FOR LOSSES THEM they are the worst service. HOWEVER, DR. FLORES I HAVE KNOWN HIM FOR ABOUT 17 YEARS AND HE TOOK BEFORE THAT CARE OF TWO FAMILY MEMBERS AND MADE HOUSE CALLS IN THE PAST ON HIS OWN TIME! DOCTORS LIKE HIM NEED TO BE MULTIPLIED AND SUPPORTED BY THE CLINIC HE WORKS FOR. HE NEEDS TO BE SUPPORTED BY THIS DR SEKE IN THIS TIME OF NEED!! I AM SO UPSET THAT YES WHO I AM SUING IS SILVER HEALTHCARE FOR TRYING TO THROW DR FLORES UNDER THE BUS FOR THE LACK OF PROFESSIONALISM AND CARE FOR HIS PATIENTS. THEY ARE JUST SAYING FIND ANOTHER DOCTOR AND HE WILL NOT BE HERE ANYMORE JUST LIKE THAT. WHEN THE ONES TO BLAME IS THE BOARD OF SILVER HEALTHCARE. DR. FLORES ALWAYS HAS FOLLOWED TO A "T" THE LAW AND NEVER HAS HAD ANY SANCTIONS ONLY WRITTEN JOURNAL HAS RECEIVED NUMEROUS AWARDS AND HAS PATTEN HIS OWN MEDICATIONS AND OINTMENTS FOR PAIN. I AM LIVING PROOF HAVING FIBRO AND MULTIPLE SCELROSIS I WAS NOT ABLE TO WALK OR DO ANYTHING FOR MYSELF AND MISSED OUT ON MY CHILDREN GROWING UP! WHEN HE CAME BACK TO NEW MEXICO HE SAVED ME I AM DOWN TO LESS MEDICATIONS AND ACTIVE HE HAS ME UNDER CONTROL AND BEEN ON THE SAME MEDICATIONS FOR ABOUT TWO YEARS AND I FEEL GREAT!! HE NEEDS SUPPORT FROM ALL HIS PATIENTS AND THE STAFF. BECAUSE OF HIM SILVER HEALTCARE IS KNOWS NOT ONLY THEY ARE LOSING THE MAJORITY OF THE PATIENTS BUT THEY ARE GOING TO GAIN A MASS LAWSUIT BECAUSE SO FAR WE HAVE OVER 30 PATIENTS AND COUNTING TO SUE SILVER HEALTHCARE FOR NEGLIGENCE AND MALPRACTICE FOR NOT TAKING OVER HIS PATIENCE AND TAKING AWAY THERE MEDICATIONS WITHOUT NOTICE AND SOME OF THESE YOU CANT BECAUSE PEOPLE WILL DIE SOME ARE NARCOTICS AND YOU CANT STOP THEM!!! AND THERE IS NO TIME TO FIND A DOCTOR!! WE ALL SUPPORT DR FLORES BECAUSE TINA FROM WALGREEN'S ON EL PASEO AND LOHMAN IN LAS CRUCES WAS THE ONE WHO PUT A COMPLAINT BASED ON HIS PRESCRIPTIONS WHEN SHE DOES NOT EVEN KNOW WHAT MOST OF HIS PATIENCE SUFFER FROM. I PERSONALLY SUFFERED AN ACCIDENT WHERE PEOPLE LOST THERE LIVES AND WAS SHOT! TO ADD ON THE FIBRO AND THE MS WELL LET ME TELL YOU I TAKE HALF OF THE MEDS THAT DR. KENNEDY HAD ME ON . DR FLORES NEEDS THE SUPPORT OF EVERYONE IF YOU WANT TO JOIN IN SUING SILVER HEALTHCARE FOR SLANDER, NEGLIGENCE /PAIN AND SUFFERING AND FOR SOME PEOPLE LIKE ME WHO HAVE SEIZURES BODILY HARM THAN CONTACT ME AT gho29atyahoodotcom. WE ARE UNITING TO GET READY AND BRING DOWN THE INJUSTICE THESE MEDICAL GROUP IS DOING TO THE PATIENCE BECAUSE OF SOME ALLEGATIONS WITH NO FACTUAL EVIDENCE. AND FOR THOSE WHO SAY HIS LICENSE IS SUSPENDED..NO IT IS NOT NEITHER IS HIS DEA OR TAXONOMY LIC. THEY CANT DO THAT WITHOUT PROOF. DR FLORES IS SEEKING LEGAL COUNSEL AND WE ARE ALL HELPING ORGANIZING SEVERAL FUND RAISERS TO FOR HIM TO WIN HIS CASE AND CLEAR HIS NAME AND SUE BOTH THIS SO CALLED PHARMACY EMPLOYEE AND SAVON PHARMACY'S AS WELL AS SILVER HEALTHCARE AND DR SEKE. YOU WANT DETAIL ON THE CASE AND WHY PLEASE DO NOT SPREAD RUMMORS ABOUT JAIL OR SUSPENSIONS OR NO LICENSE THE REASON THEY ARE SAYING THIS IS BECAUSE THE LAW SUIT HAS BEEN MENTIONED AND THEY ARE GETTING SERVED LIKE I SAID YOU WANT DETAIL INFO AND ALL LEGAL DOCUMENTS ON WHAT IS GOING ON EMAIL GHO AT YAHOO DOT COM!!! LETS UNITE TO SAVE DR. FLORES FOR THOSE OF US WHO HAVE KNOWN HIM FOR OVER 17YEARS AND KNOW HIM WELL AND FOR THOSE WHO EXPRESS NEGATIVE COMMENTS YOU MAY JUST HAVE BEEN SEEKING DRUGS AND HE WILL NOT PRESCRIBE UNTIL HE IS DONE WITH ALL HIS NECESSARY EXAMINATIONS AND REFERENCE YOUR PREVIOUS MEDICAL FILES . I KNOW HE WAS CANCELING PATTIENTS FOR DOCTOR JUMPING SO MAYBE SOME HERE ARE ANGRY AND HAVE TO ALLEGEDLY EXPRESS SOMETHING NEGATIVE. SHOW VIDEO OR WRITTEN PROOF WITH TESTIMONY IN LEGAL COUNSEL AND BRING IT ON IF YOU THINK HE IS SUCH A BAD DOCTOR!! OR WHY NOT JUST GO TO ANOTHER DOCTOR INSTEAD OF JUST KEEP GOING TO HIM?? HUM IT MIGHT BE BECAUSE YOU THINK HE MIGHT GIVE YOU SOMETHING ? BUT HE WONT HE IS THE MOST HONEST DOCTOR AND THAT IS WHY A MAN OF GOD IS NEVER HURT BUY COMMENTS OR STONES!! FREE OF SIN THROW THE FIRST STONE!
Not replying to phone messages, no responding to pharmacy requests, etc., is considered ABANDONMENT ! ! Abandonment is considered MALPRACTICE ! After reviewing over a years worth of poor treatment from Dr. Flores, I am seriously considering a law suit.
Only a drug dealer. Although he is quite capable, he does not follow through, only writes you the same prescription you got the time before. Consistently loses ALL faxes, regardless of who sent them, pharmacy, laboratory reports, reports from referrals, everything. I recommend that ALL problems be reported to New Mexico Medical Board, even about bad staff experiences.
Knows a LOT, but is incredibly LAZY ! If you only want drugs, this is the place to go, after a small exam, blood test, UA, you get drugs. If you actually want continued health care, you will not find that at Silver Health care, especially Flores. It is IMPOSSIBLE to get a message to him, the staff can and do lose everything. IF the doctor was the best ever, the staff blow it for him, worst possible performance, incompetent beyond belief. Doesn't keep records up top date, LAZY !
THIS DR. JOHN A FLORES MY FIRST EXPERIENCE WITH HIM WAS A WOW I DID TAKE MY OTHER PAPER WORK IN HE REVIEWED IT THOROUGHLY THEN HE DID HIS OWN EXAM HE EXPLAINED EVERYTHING TO A T I DNT HAVE TO TELL HIM NOTHING I SAID TO MYSELF WOW THIS DOCTOR IS NOT ONLY HAVD EMPATHY OF OTHERS BUT HE IS VERY CALM EXPLAINS IS VERY PATIENT TAKES HIS TIME ANSWERS ALL YOUR QUESTIONS IF YOU CANT TAKE CONSIDERSTION AND HAVE PATIENCE WAITING WELL YOU KNOW WHAT THE WAY HE STAYS IN THE ROOM WITH EACH INDIVIDUAL HE WELL ALSO DO WITH YOU AFTER ALL IGNORANTS SOME OF YOU ARENT THE ONLY ONES
