There are a lot of good reviews for Dr. Richard Sanchez on the internet. One recent review says “efficient, thorough and professional. Kind personality, soft spoken. Very observant, and listens. That’s pretty much all I need. I highly recommend him. I can’t speak to accuracy in diagnosis because I lack the training necessary for this kind of thing, it’s not like having strep throat or something (although I often wish it was).”
We found another review for Dr. Almazan that said, “Dr. Almanzan seem to perform numerous tests to find problem and prescribed just enough medication for the problem.”
