It is better to come in on an appointment to see a doctor. If you are a walk-in, it takes time to see at doctor and sometimes you may not be seen that day. It is located in Downtown San Diego and it is accessible by buses, trolleys, or walking

A little shaky but nice manager! Pisano is the best and charge nurse is a head case. she thought blood thinner was an inhaler, they forgot me n a room for two hours. Their text reminder feature is great and they do take walk-ins. Watch out, they can only address one situation at a time and will make an appointment for paperwork, then review it, then see you. So you may get three or four appointments with medical to get one thing covered. Getting records is impossible and also front desk, one lady is a real gem ;) Nurses assistants can be a bit short tempered and not the greatest at customer service, if they get snappy get the head talk to the Dr or NP and request someone nicer. Remember you are the patient!

I went to this location because it had the earliest available appointment and was a bit worried from reading reviews on the place. I plan to come back for all my future visits. The front office staff is friendly and polite. I did wait about a half hour after my appointment time to get seen by the nurse, then another 15 to be seen by the doctor, but they were all very friendly and knowledgeable. Dr. Gordon was patient, listened attentively, and explained what he thought. He said I was fine and there was nothing to worry about but he would be happy to see me anytime if I have any anxieties over my health. In my experience, most doctors dismiss your worries and send you off. He was the complete opposite, making sure I was satisfied and knew that he was there to help, even ordering blood tests to give me peace of mind. When I got my blood drawn, the man doing it was very friendly and made the process quick and painless. They give quality care here and treat you with respect.
