Staff was nice and efficient, but I didn't like filling out all the forms as a new patient. Dr. Pazos was just incredible! I waited over 15 minutes to be seen even after taking 5 minutes to fill out the paperwork, but he was worth it. By the time I left, I felt Dr. Pazos had known me longer than my internist who I have gone to for 7 years. Dr. Pazos deserves to be on the cover of a magazine!
