Jul 20, 2019
our area has so few doctors, so you don't have much of a choice as to who you're going to.
Jul 16, 2019
I will NOT recommend this practice to anyone. It is very unfortunate that there are so few endocrinologists in the San Luis Obispo area and that this level of care is tolerated because there are no other options except going to Santa Barbara.
Jun 28, 2019
This provider is the best Endocrinologist I have ever had. Everything was on point, she created a plan while making sure I was involved and a participant in the plan. Answered all my questions, implemented new medication regimen, scheduled blood work, and follow up visit. Sounds like the only thing that is needing immediate attention is the front desk representative, and or reformatting that department so a friendly customer service professional can do the first intake, and know how to properly treat new patients. This doctor deserves that front end rep to be a professional in representation to her and the other doctors in that office.

I highly recommend this doctor

DR. VALDEZ is fantastic. she takes the time to listen and directly looks at you instead of her laptop. She is a compassionate and caring Doctor which is rare in the United States.She doesn't treat her patient like just another patient coming through her office.

Its great to see the staff smile and laugh. They are respectful but most off all they treat a patient like an old friend. Well done Dr Valdez's office
